  • FBI Agent Chase Bishop turned himself in to authorities and could face a second-degree assault charge

"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".

An off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigation agent whose gun accidentally fired after it dropped out of its holster while he was doing a backflip at a nightclub was taken into custody on Tuesday, jail records showed.

'If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then'.

Our reporting partner, 9News in Denver, said that multiple sources told them that Bishop works out of Washington D.C. and is a decorated former Army captain who served in Afghanistan. It showed a man-now suspected to be Bishop-dancing and doing a backflip late at night in a Denver bar called Mile High Spirits.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, cellphone footage allegedly shows the agent's gun fire when he attempts to pick it up after it falls from his trousers on the dance floor. As he grabs the gun, it can be seen firing.

Bishop is due in court for an advisement hearing on Wednesday.

Booking documents do not indicate if Bishop has hired an attorney.

Mile High Spirits, the Denver distillery where incident occurred, released a statement on Facebook. He then walks off the dance floor with his hands up. Denver police said last week that the agent could face possible charges pending the results of lab testing to determine if alcohol was a factor.

The bullet hit the victim in an artery in his leg, according to previous news reports.

According to police officials, a man in the crowd was shot in the leg and taken to a hospital.

Chase Bishop is seen here in a mugshot provided by Denver Police Department.
