Dancing is all fun and games until somebody gets shot. One FBI officer has been arrested for accidentally discharging his weapon while dancing at a bar in Denver after turning himself in on Tuesday. 29-year-old Chad Bishop was seen on camera break dancing in a crowd of several onlookers. After performing a few moves, he decided to backflip into a handstand. It is at that moment his pistol fell out of his pants. Bishop stumbled forward clumsily and reached for the pistol, discharging it once before picking it up and walking off the screen with his hands up in apology.
One person was struck in the leg, but is expected to survive. The bar, Mile High Spirits, released a statement on Facebook regarding the shooting. "It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an FBI agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules," the bar stated. They will be offering the victim free drinks for life.
Retired FBI special agent James A. Gagliano wrote for CNN, stating, "This agent should have taken better care to conceal and secure his weapon. Even before he lost control of it, you can clearly see the weapon's outline against his shirt in the video. That's an egregiously unacceptable concealment effort."
