FBI agent who dropped gun while dancing charged with assault

FBI agent who accidentally shot bar patron after dropping his gun while dancing charged with assault

Denver police have said Bishop was dancing at a nightclub in the early hours of June 2 when the gun fell from his waistband holster and hit the floor.

He moved to pick the weapon up and unintentionally fired one shot, police said.

"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, adding later: "We are deeply saddened by the events that occurred and look forward to speaking with representatives of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, so we can come to understand his presence and his need to be armed in our establishment". In the video, Bishop is dancing and then performs a back flip.

Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said further charges may be laid against the agent, depending on the outcome of a blood alcohol test.

Bishop, 29, was not arrested when the shooting happened.

Manchester United are not interested in pursuing a deal for Juventus left back Alex Sandro , according the Manchester Evening News .

"The FBI will continue to fully cooperate with the Denver Police Department and the Denver District Attorney's Office as this matter proceeds through the judicial process", Sanders said.

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

A man was shot in the leg by that bullet and survived, but the victim's lawyer says he was seriously injured. Police had initially released Bishop to an Federal Bureau of Investigation supervisor while awaiting toxicology results before deciding whether to charge him.

Retired FBI supervisory special agent James A. Gagliano wrote for CNN that he understood the need for a young agent to blow off steam.

"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.
