Chase Bishop, 29, reportedly surrendered on Tuesday in connection with the June 2 incident, which was captured on video.

Bishop is due back in court on July 10. Depending on what those results, additional charges could be filed.

Chase Bishop turned himself in to police and was charged with one count of second-degree assault, according to a statement from the District Attorney's office.

An off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigation agent reaches to pick up his dropped firearm while dancing.

AN FBI agent who was filmed accidentally shooting someone after his gun fell out of his holster while doing a backflip in a crowded bar has been charged.

Our reporting partner, 9News in Denver, said that multiple sources told them that Bishop works out of Washington D.C. and is a decorated former Army captain who served in Afghanistan.

It's critical to prevent a battle for key port in Yemen
Officials issued a statement Monday that Yemen analyst Adam Baron described as a "yellow light" for the Yemen offensive. Yemen relies on imports for 90 percent of its food and 70% of those transit through Hodeida, Lowcock said.

"Additional charges may be filed based on the results of a pending blood alcohol content analysis", the Denver District Attorney's office said in a statement on Tuesday.

Later that day, KDVR reported Bishop was charged with second-degree assault.

In a video from the scene of the shooting supplied to Denver 7, the unidentified dancer recovers from his move and reaches for the pistol on the floor, apparently firing the gun in the process. He then put the gun back in his trousers and walked away with his hands up.

"I heard a loud bang and I thought some idiot set off a firecracker", Reddington told ABC News.

The FBI is now conducting an internal investigation into the shooting. I'm still thinking it's a firework.

When the off-duty agent went to pick up the gun, it went off, hitting Reddington in the lower leg, authorities said. "The whole team at Mile High Spirits is praying for the victim's quick recovery, and he's welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever".
