Chicago Bears John Grant has been fined $250 after pleading no contest to the charge of using a stun gun against his wife.

It's reported that John Tasered his wife, Nicole, after he won a bet against her that Chicago would beat Green Bay Packers.

His wife, incidentally, is a Packers fan.

John reportedly claimed that his wife had allowed him to use the Taser on her if the Packers lost; however, Nicole phoned the police after her husband allegedly went a little overboard: stunning her twice in the buttocks and once in the thighs.

Although police discovered a cell phone video appearing to show Nicole laughing while being subjected to the stun gun assault, 42-year-old John was still fined after appearing at Dodge County (Ill.) Circuit Court.

When asked whether she experienced any pain after being targeted with the stun gun, Nicole simply said: "Hell yeah, it hurt."
