An off-duty FBI agent dancing wildly at a downtown Denver bar accidentally shot a man in the leg when the agent tried to pick up a gun that fell from its holster as he performed a handstand, Denver police said.
A bystander recorded video of the incident involving the unnamed agent, which authorities said took place on Saturday at the Mile High Spirits and Distillery night spot, and the footage was shared widely online on Sunday.
In a statement, the Denver Police Department said the agent “was dancing at a night club when his firearm became dislodged from its waistband holster and fell onto the floor. When the agent retrieved his handgun an unintended discharge occurred.”
The Denver District Attorney’s office will decide whether to press any charges against the agent. （Reuters）
