FBI Agent To Face Charges In Shooting At LoDo Nightclub

The FBI agent who unintentionally shot someone while dancing in a Denver bar turned himself in to police on Tuesday and is awaiting charges. The firearm went off when the agent picked it up.

Chase Bishop, 29, is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning and has been booked into the Downtown Denver Detention Center, per the jail records.

Bishop gained national notoriety after video of his backflip on a dance floor in the early hours of June 2 went viral.

A video of the incident captured by another bar patron, and spread widely online, showed Bishop break dancing, then performing a backflip. He tries to pick it up and it fires. He then walks off the dance floor with his hands up. The DA's office has not filed formal charges, she said.

Mile High Spirits said on its Facebook page that the bar's management was "deeply saddened" by the incident. He was taken to the Denver Police Department headquarters and later released to an Federal Bureau of Investigation supervisor.

Bishop is not assigned to the Denver office but works out of Washington, sources told KUSA.

The FBI declined comment on the matter Tuesday "in order to preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation", Denver FBI spokeswoman Amy Sanders said.

The man who was shot, Tom Reddington, told "Good Morning America" last week that he and his friends were sitting at one of the tables when he heard "a loud bang" that he thought was a firecracker.

"We are filing this charge now rather than waiting until the [blood alcohol content] 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 in the statement.

"Then I looked at my leg and see some brown residue". The agent was on vacation at the time of the incident and not on duty.
