An FBI agent charged with a felony for accidentally shooting a man when the gun in his holster fell off after he did a backflip on a Denver dance floor waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
Chase Bishop, 30, is now scheduled to be arraigned in district court on Oct. 18 on one count of second-degree assault in connection with the June 2 nightclub shooting that wounded a man in the leg, the Denver Post reports.
The news went viral after a video of the incident was posted online. It showed Bishop, who was off duty, showing off as onlookers encircled him when he did a backflip, causing the gun to fall from his holster around his waist. As he retrieved the weapon, it fired into the crowd.
In a strange development, Bishop was allowed to carry his service weapon again – on and off duty.
