FBI Agent To Face Charges In Shooting At LoDo Nightclub

FBI Agent To Face Charges In Shooting At LoDo Nightclub

An off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who accidentally shot a man at a Denver bar after doing a dance floor backflip was charged on Tuesday with second-degree assault, prosecutors said.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, cellphone footage allegedly shows the agent's gun fire when he attempts to pick it up after it falls from his trousers on the dance floor.

The New York Post reports, Bishop's gun discharged and struck fellow reveller Tom Reddington in the leg at the Mile High Spirits bar in Downtown Denver. He then placed the gun in his waistband and walked off the dance floor with his hands in the air, the video shows. During the flip, his gun falls out of his trousers and when Bishop picks it up, the gun fires.

Thomas Reddington, 24, who was hit by the bullet in the leg, told "Good Morning America" on Thursday that he was still confused by the incident.

When the off-duty agent goes to pick the firearm up, he somehow manages to squeeze the trigger, resulting in a sudden flash of light and panic among the watching crowd.

The Denver District Attorney's Office said Bishop, 29, turned himself in on Tuesday morning after an arrest warrant was issued and has since been booked into jail.

Chase Bishop has been charged with second-degree assault and is in custody in Denver. The FBI also has not released any information about its policy for agents carrying weapons while off duty and in alcohol establishments. The Denver District Attorney's Office has not filed formal charges against Bishop, but spokeswoman Maro Casparian said charges will likely be announced Wednesday. "Then I looked down at my leg and see some brown residue".

"It's weird. It's beyond freakish", Reddington said, describing the incident.
