'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, ' she said. He scrambles for the gun, which fires as he picks it up.

Additional charges could be filed based on the results of toxicology tests, which have not yet been received.

The judge granted Bishop the lowest level of supervision.

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. The gun can be seen going off after it fell out of the holster and he went to retrieve it.

He is set for advisement in court on Wednesday morning.

After the gun fired, the report says Bishop placed the gun in his waistband and walked off the dance floor with his hands in the air.


Chase Bishop, 29, is being held in the Downtown Detention Center on suspicion of second-degree assault, according to inmate records on the Denver Sheriff Department website.

In a bystander video obtained by KMGH, Bishop, who was off-duty at the time, can be seen dancing at 12:45 a.m. June 2 at Mile High Spirits Distillery and Tasting Bar as onlookers crowd around, smiling and laughing. He then put the gun back in his trousers and walked away with his hands up.

The injured 24-year-old appeared on Good Morning America, when he told reporters it he didn't realise he'd been shot until he saw blood running down his leg.

Authorities did not initially identify the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent because he was not arrested at the time, Denver police community resource officer Marika Putnam said.

Reddington told ABC News last week that he thought someone was setting off a firecracker before realizing he had been shot.

It also said the wounded patron is welcome to complimentary drinks forever at the bar.
