Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who dropped gun while dancing charged

Bystanders said Bishop didn't check to see if the person he shot was okay, according to The Denver Channel.

Video footage of the incident shows Bishop dancing in a crowd of people.

Chase Bishop, 29, appeared in court on Wednesday, after turning himself in to police on Tuesday.

It went off as he picked it up, injuring another customer in the leg.

AN FBI agent who was filmed accidentally shooting someone after his gun fell out of his holster while doing a backflip in a crowded bar has been charged.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Chase Bishop appears in a booking photo released by the Denver District Attorney's Office, in Denver, Colorado, U.S., June 12, 2018. Additional charges may be filed after testing determines whether alcohol was involved in the accident.

Authorities say Chase Bishop, 29, was showing off on the dance floor in the middle of a circle of fellow revelers when he completed an impressive back handspring that was caught on video by a fellow reveler June 2.

Sarah Sanders and Raj Shah planning to leave White House
The White House Office of Communications has been one of the most volatile of the Trump administration. However, Sanders disputed the story and said CBS never asked her if she was planning on leaving.

"If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then", McCann said. During the flip, his gun falls out of his trousers and when Bishop picks it up, the gun fires. The victim suffered a serious but non-life threatening injury to the lower leg.

Reddington has been released from the hospital but his lawyer, Frank Azar, told The Denver Post that he is "pretty seriously hurt".

Bishop quickly holsters his gun as some patrons flee and others appear shocked and confused.

"Then I looked at my leg and see some brown residue ..." All of a sudden from the knee down it became completely red.

Reddington says he doesn't blame the agent for the shooting but has hired attorneys.

An FBI spokeswoman would not comment on the incident "in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation", the Associated Press news agency reported.
