VIDEO: We finally have footage of the Bears fan tasing his Packers fan wife
These questions can now all be answered. Video of the "winner gets to tase the loser" bet incident has finally surfaced, and we see that the woman does give consent to be tasered. Trouble is, stun guns are illegal in Wisconsin without a concealed weapons permit. Dude is still facing up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
The video of the Bears fan tasing his Packers fan wife can be seen below. The footage is safe for work, as the profanities have all been bleeped out.
"It feels like someone's biting my ass!" the woman exclaims. Okay, I did not know that is what a tasering feels like.
Police had used the cellphone video and the woman's text messages to corroborate whether or not she had agreed to being tasered. While she had agreed to the bet, she says she didn't think her husband would actually do it. He pulled the trigger three separate times, which does seem like a little much. I'm guessing there are some marital issues besides a Packers-Bears rivalry in the backstory here.
In fact, the whole thing is tragic on levels which I did not previously realize before concocting my insensitive one-liners. According to police reports it turns out the couple was living out of their pick-up truck. After tasering his wife, the guy locked her out of the truck -- essentially locking her out of her home. And then he threw her dog out of the truck. Like, he literally threw the poor dog.
If you ask me, throwing a dog should also be punishable with six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
And that's before we even press any charges for filming cellphone video in portrait mode.
