“Dancing Queen” F.B.I. Agent Who Shot Bystander Negligently is Charged With Assault…

Remember THIS genius???

Cool dudes like him just give us all a warm glow when we realize that they are the “highly trained government employees” who should be allowed to carry weapons, and understand that this is the caliber of those we pay to keep us safe.

We’ll just carry our own weapons, thank you very much…

An off-duty FBI agent whose firearm discharged while he was dancing at a Denver nightclub, striking another patron in the leg, was formally charged with second-degree assault Tuesday.

Prosecutors said that 29-year-old Chase Bishop could face additional charges depending on the results of a blood alcohol analysis.

“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,” Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said in a statement obtained by KDVR. “If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then.”

Police have said Bishop was dancing at the downtown Mile High Spirits Distillery and Tasting Bar on June 2 when the gun fell out of his waistband holster onto the floor.

The firearm went off when the agent picked it up, striking patron Tom Reddington in the leg.

“We sat down at one of those picnic tables — I heard a loud bang and I thought some idiot set off a firecracker,” Reddington told ABC News’ “Good Morning America” last week.

“Then I looked down at my leg and see some brown residue … I’m still thinking it’s a firework … all of a sudden from the knee down my leg became completely red. And that’s when it clicked in my head, ‘Oh, I’ve been shot.'”

The owners of the distillery released a statement on Facebook saying that the agent had violated the facility’s rules by carrying a loaded firearm into the tasting room.

“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,” it said.

The distillery also offered Reddington “complimentary drinks forever.”

    Hopefully this jackhole is a lesson to the rest of the law enforcement family, especially the FBI, that you can’t be a jackhole while carrying a weapon. And to act like you aren’t at fault, Ooops is not a good response, is really not an acceptable response. This guy needs to be cited for a whole lot of things along with being a jackhole. Another black eye for the FBI!

    1. Big black eye.
      An I’m sorry, GOD knows I’ve made mistakes and everyone does something stupid every now and then…But he has to be FIRED, and out of law enforcement forever. There should be higher standards for government gun toters, and for sure SOME freaking standards. Surely getting a beer buzz, dancing like a chubby drunk chick, losing his weapon, and then negligently shooting someone in the leg violates policies.
