FBI agent 'dropped gun while dancing causing serious injury to patron'
An off-duty FBI agent who investigators say accidentally fired a gun that fell while he was dancing at a Denver bar, wounding another patron in the leg, has been charged with second-degree assault.
Denver District Attorney Beth McCann charged 29-year-old Chase Bishop on Tuesday after he turned himself in to the sheriff's department.
Booking documents do not indicate if Bishop has hired a lawyer.
Police have said Bishop was dancing at the downtown bar on June 2 when the gun fell from his waistband holster on to the floor.
The firearm went off when he picked it up, and another customer suffered a serious but non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower leg.
Additional charges could be filed based on the results of toxicology tests, which have not yet been received.
