Federal Bureau of Investigation agent charged with assault after firing gun while backflipping

Chase Bishop

An off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who accidentally shot a man in the leg after his gun slipped from its holster while he was performing a backflip in a bar has appeared in court on a second-degree assault charge.

Bishop was dancing at a Denver nightclub June 2 when his service weapon fell out of his waistband holster as he attempted to do a back handspring, authorities said. He has been charged with second-degree assault, according to The Associated Press.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, Chase Bishop, is being charged with second-degree assault following accidental firing of his gun in a Colorado bar.

Tom Reddington, 24, was left shot in the leg and reportedly will have to undergo vascular surgery to fix a major artery.

One person was struck in the lower leg and was expected to survive, police said. Bystanders said Bishop didn't check to see if the person he shot was okay, according to The Denver Channel. Denver police said last week that the agent could face possible charges pending the results of lab testing to determine if alcohol was a factor.

In court on Wednesday, the judge gave Bishop permission to travel back to Washington, D.C., where he lives.

A video of the incident captured by another bar patron, and spread widely online, showed Bishop break dancing, then performing a backflip.

Mile High Spirits said on its Facebook page that the bar's management was "deeply saddened" by the incident.

The agent, who has been named in the USA as Chase Bishop, could also face further charges pending the results of an alcohol blood test.

"He's welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever", they said in a statement published by KDVR. The firearm went off when the agent picked it up.

"This agent should have taken better care to hide and secure his weapon", Gagliano wrote. A muzzle flash can be seen on the video. That's an egregiously unacceptable concealment effort.
