JUNEAU | A 42-year-old Illinois man was ordered to pay a $250 fine after being found guilty of using an electronic stun gun on his wife after the Packers vs. Bears game in November.

John M. Grant, Tinley Park, pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct on Jan. 9.

Judge Steven Bauer ordered the fine plus court costs, totaling $568.

A 12:39 a.m. on Nov. 5, a Mayville police officer responded to Dan’s King Pin, 31 N. Main St., to speak to a woman who reported that her husband had used a stun gun on her three times while at Sidelines Tap, 111 S. Main St.

The wife said that while the two were smoking cigarettes outside of Sidelines, Grant had used the stun gun twice on her butt and once on her thigh.

Grant said that the two had made a bet on the game as she is a Packers fan and he’s a Bears fan. If the Packers lost, she would be shocked with the stun gun.

In reviewing the woman’s text messages about the bet and a cellphone video, the officer determined that she did make the bet with her husband and that she did consent to having a stun gun being used on her. She told the officers that she didn’t think her husband would actually use the weapon on her.
