Dancing FBI agent, accused in backflip gunfire incident, can carry weapon again

A judge has ruled that an FBI agent can keep his gun after the agent accidentally shot a patron in a Denver nightclub while dancing

Video footage shows Bishop dancing in the middle of a circle of people before doing a backflip.

Prosecutors didn't object so the judge said Bishop could be armed both on and off duty.

Bishop was charged with second-degree assault last month after he accidentally shot a man at a Denver nightclub.

Bishop's lawyer, David Goddard, told Judge Fran Simonet that the Federal Bureau of Investigation strongly encourages its agents to carry the service weapons when they are not working. Trying to be slick about it, the off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigation agent tried to pick up his gun, which discharged and wounded 24-year Thomas Reddington in his leg.

"It appears an off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigations agent was dancing at a night club when his firearm became dislodged from its waistband holster and fell onto the floor", the Denver Police Department reports in a news release. "The victim was transported to the hospital with a good prognosis".

Thomas Reddington, 24, of Denver was sitting at a table near where Bishop was dancing and was hit in the left leg by the stray bullet.

'Then I looked down at my leg and see some brown residue. I'm still thinking it's a firework, "he told ABC".

"And that's when it clicked in my head, 'Oh, I've been shot".

While the man was treated and released from the hospital, the Federal Bureau of Investigation officer was charged with a second-degree assault felony charge after turning himself in when an arrest warrant was issued.

Bishop turned himself in on June 12th and the next day, a judge granted the lowest level of supervision, freeing him on a $1,000 bond and allowing him to return to Washington where he lives and works. The agency has also not released any information concerning its policy for agents while off-duty in bars. The prosecution also did not disclose the result of the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's blood test, which would have revealed the level of Bishop's intoxication during the shooting but said that the test did not warrant additional charges against the man.
