Bishop was off-duty and was among revelers at the Mile High Spirits and Distillery nightclub in downtown Denver in the early morning hours of June 2, Denver police said in a statement. He faces charges for second-degree assault but he has not been formally charged, according to NBC affiliate KUSA.
The FBI agent who police say accidentally shot someone when his extreme dance moves caused his gun to drop to the floor has been charged with assault. The video then shows Bishop reach for the gun and allegedly accidentally fire the weapon, hitting another man at the establishment. Police had initially released Bishop to an Federal Bureau of Investigation supervisor while awaiting toxicology results before deciding whether to charge him.More news: E3 2018: Fire Emblem: Three Houses Announced on Nintendo Direct

Mile High Spirits said on its Facebook page that the bar's management was "deeply saddened" by the incident. Reddington has been offered "complimentary drinks forever" at the business. The firearm went off when the agent picked it up.
"This agent should have taken better care to hide and secure his weapon", Gagliano wrote. "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.More news: NY attorney general sues Trump Foundation, alleges illegal self-dealing
