FBI agent charged with assault after firing gun while backflipping

Recommended Posts

An off-duty FBI agent who accidentally shot someone while doing a backflip has been charged with assault.


Chase Bishop, 29, was in a bar in Denver when he pulled some moves on the dance floor a little too enthusiastically.


His gun fell out of his waistband holder and onto the floor.


When he went to grab it, the firearm went off and shot another customer leaving them with a serious but non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the lower leg.


Bishop turned himself in after the incident on June 2 and he has been charged with second-degree assault.


Additional charges could be filed based on the results of a blood-alcohol content test, which has not yet been received, authorities said.


‘We are filing this charge now rather than waiting until the BAC report is received, which we understand could take another week, because sufficient evidence has been presented to file it,’ Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said.


The FBI declined to comment ‘in order to preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation,’ spokeswoman Amy Sanders said.
