DENVER, COLORADO — Some law enforcement are too careless to have weapons, altogether. While dancing, this nut had his safety off and accidentally let out shots on the floor.

According to NBC News, 29-year-old off-duty FBI agent Chase Bishop thought to get on the floor and show young folks how to do it.
WELL, HE DID IT
The source reports that the agent’s gun accidentally fired after it dropped out of its holster as he did a back flip — at Denver distillery Mile High Spirits. Reportedly, Bishop was taken into custody.
Bishop allegedly turned himself at the Denver County Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday morning and was being held in a detention center in downtown Denver.
The Denver County District Attorney’s Office states that he was charged with one count of second-degree assault.
Denver police say the incident happened in the early hours of June 2. When the gun fell from his holster and hit the floor, he attempted to grab it.
However, during that recover effort, the gun went off and wounded a man. According to the source’s report, Bishop shot the man in the leg.
The victim was taken to a local hospital and was listed in good condition after treatment.
As can be seen below, the entire incident was caught on video.
On June 4, the distillery released a statement via Facebook as follows.
“At Mile High Spirits, we pride ourselves on being a craft distillery with high-quality products and an engaging customer experience, in a fun and safe atmosphere. It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an FBI agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules. As a result of his misconduct, one of our innocent patrons was shot.”
“Our security team was able to execute a catastrophic event plan, ensuring, the safe exit of all patrons in the establishment after the shooting,” the company mentioned. “We are deeply saddened by the events that occurred and look forward to speaking with representatives of the FBI, so we can come to understand his presence and his need to be armed in our establishment. The whole team at Mile High Spirits is praying for the victim’s quick recovery, and he’s welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever.
NBC News reports that Amy Sanders, spokeswoman from the FBI field office in Denver, refused to comment on the incident “to preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation.”
Yet, at the same time, Sanders said the field office would fully cooperate with Denver police and prosecutors — while “this matter proceeds through the judicial process.”
The source reports that Bishop isn’t actually assigned to the Denver office. Instead, he works out of Washington. ABC 7—Denver says he was there for training.
Nevertheless, he’s scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday morning, June 13.
And it looks like he was actually booked for the crime.
