NFL fandom taken to a new level in recent grudge-match.
In one of those only in America kind of stories, a husband has admitted to tasering his wife after she lost a bet while watching the Green Bay Packers versus Chicago Bears game.
John Grant, 42, was watching the game with his wife, a Packers fan, at a bar in Mayville, Wisconsin made the bet on the basis of who would win.
When the Bears beat the Packers 27-20 the pair, who had been drinking during the game, went out into an alley for a cigarette where Grant tasered his wife twice in the buttocks while she filmed it on her mobile phone.
Later when speaking to police, Grant’s wife did not think he would actually go through with the bet.
Mayville police chief Christopher MacNeill said the woman could be heard laughing during the first two times she was stunned, before a third attempt by her husband on the thigh was considered over the line, starting an argument which led to police being called.
