Remember that dancing fool who turned out to be an FBI agent that shot someone after his gun fell out during a backflip? Well, it turns out when a federal agent shoots someone on accident and then doesn't even check to see if the victim is ok it actually is a crime. 29-year-old FBI agent Chase Bishop has been charged with one count of second-degree assault after the debacle at a nightclub in Colorado.

The shooting took place on June 2 and quickly turned into a viral video and internet meme. Bishop was forced to turn himself in Tuesday morning after a warrant for his arrest was issued by Denver police, according to Denver District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Maro Casparian. District Attorney Beth McCann said in a news release that she is not waiting for the results of a blood-alcohol test to charge Bishop.
"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," McCann said. "If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then." The video of the shooting took place while the off-duty Bishop was partying at Mile High Spirits, a distillery and dance club in the Ballpark neighborhood.

The video shows a rather drunk Bishop attempting a backflip but in the process, his handgun falls from its holster. One shot was fired when the apparently incompetent agent went to pick up the gun by squeezing the trigger. The shot struck a man in the crowd in the femoral artery of his leg. The injury was life-threatening but the victim is expected to recover, according to his attorney Frank Azar. The agent's true character was revealed when even after firing the gun, he did not try to make sure that any victims were okay. Bishop simply puts the gun back in his waistband, throws his hands up in the air and leaves the dance floor as if nothing happened.
Amy Sanders, an FBI spokeswoman said, "In order to preserve the integrity of the ongoing investigation, we are unable to comment regarding this matter. 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."

i didn't see the gun go off. i don't see anyone panicking as if a shot was fired and the agent doesn't respond like he had an accidental discharge.
I saw the video and the gun fired into the crowd at a low angle with the idiot just walking away like "nothing to see here". The gun did not fire from the drop, it fired when the idiot grabbed it by the grip and trigger.
Couple of huge questions that I have are… Why did he have his weapon on him while getting hammered and doing the funky chicken dance? Why did he have a round in the chamber while doing the above? And why didn't he immediately check out the bystanders to make sure no one was injured.
Methinks he knew he screwed up bigly and thought he would just slip away unnoticed and hopefully keep his job?
If anyone with a concealed carry permit is going out for a night of drinking the firearm should stay at home or secured in the car. If by chance a CC person is drunk in a bar and something bad happens where a gun would be useful to stop or protect oneself its going to end badly for the drunk CC person.
If someone is so paranoid that they feel they always need a loaded gun with a round in the chamber they don't belong acting the fool in a crowded tavern, stay home then its much safer. Well maybe not with this loose cannon! Pun intended!
