Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who dropped gun while dancing charged

Bishop then put the gun back in his trousers and walked away with his hands up.

A spokesman for the Denver District Attorney's office told HuffPost 29-year-old Chase Bishop turned himself in, but he has not yet been formally charged. The agent was taken to police headquarters and later released to a supervisor with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Bishop was partying at Mile High Spirits, a distillery and dance club in the Ballpark neighborhood, while off duty.

Denver police previously said investigators were waiting on alcohol and drug tests before determining whether any arrest would be made. He scrambles for the gun, which fires as he picks it up. During the move, a firearm fell out of his waistband holster and onto the floor, Denver police said.

Footage of the incident shows Mr Bishop dancing with a crowd around him when he suddenly thrusts himself backward onto his hands.

Sanders said the field office would fully cooperate with Denver police and prosecutors "as this matter proceeds through the judicial process".




Special Agent Amy Sanders, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation field office in Denver, declined to comment on Bishop's employment status with the agency.

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.

"Then I looked down at my leg and see some brown residue, ..."

"He's welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever", they said in a statement published by KDVR.

"It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules", the bar said.
