A FBI Agent is under investigation after accidentally shooting a man in a bar.

Denver, CO - An FBI agent is under investigation for accidentally shooting a man while dancing off-duty at a bar.

The shooting was captured on video (below.)

The incident happened 12:45 a.m. Saturday morning at Mile High Spirits, according to The Denver Post.

Video shows the off-duty FBI agent dancing. While dancing, the agent did a backflip which caused his gun to drop out and hit the ground.

The gun didn't fire when it hit the ground, but while picking up the gun, the agent appears to have put his booger hook on the bang switch.

The gun fired, and a male onlooker was shot in the leg.

A witness told KDVR, "Everyone was kind of shocked after it happened because [the agent] kind of put his gun back away and then he walked away."

The victim was transported to the hospital and has a "good prognosis," according to KDVR.

Denver PD responded, and took the FBI agent to police headquarters before releasing him to an FBI supervisor. The agent was not identified.

The Denver homicide unit is investigating the incident, and CBS4 reports that they drew blood from the agent to determine if alcohol was a factor.

After the blood test results are back, the investigation will be forwarded to the district attorney's office to make a decision on what criminal charges will be filed.

What a horrible way to carry a firearm on so many levels. It amazes me how many FBI agents carry their handguns in an unsafe manner. They are touted to be highly trained in the use of their firearms, but time and time again, their actions make me highly doubt the effectiveness of their training. Or once their training is complete, the continued training required to safely carry and use a handgun could be the culprit. I highly suspect this agent had been drinking. I spent 15 years as a police firearms instructor, and this guy would have his weapon immediately confiscated and serious retraining would be required before he could even carry again.

John Brown no need to state the obvious man... I am sure this is not the agent proudest moment

I don't know that it is that obvious. Many police officers will go their entire career without having to deal with an FBI agent. Because of where I worked, they were everywhere. Most are a bunch of smug, arrogant assholes that love to try and push around the local police because of their supposed superior training and knowledge. This guy is the exact reason why the FBI leaves a sour taste in the mouths of most law enforcement. For christ's sake, he discharged his firearm and then just walked away as if nothing happened. I would pick any random patrol officer to back me up before I would let one of these "professionals" stand behind me with a weapon in his hand.

I can't even put my finger on the trigger without consciously deciding to. I wonder if this guy will get promoted out of the field.

What a dumbass, and these are supposed to be the best of the best, book smarts do not make a cop! I’m amazed he had his gun on him, most feebees I know need to get their gun out of their desk drawer.

Wow. And his dancing was horribly awkward as well... What a party pooer.

@Burgers Allday...now I really can tell that you don’t actually read articles, you just fly off at the greasy fingertips! Read the article, tool.

Good, I am glad they drew blood. Sorry I implied that they had not. I stand corrected on that point. Hope this site lets us know when the tox results come back, one way or the other.

Ok, all that being said, please remember that his best punishment is that he won't be living that one down any time soon. The combination of super-white dancing, super-white clothing and the spectacularly stupid mishandling of his firearm will guarantee a lifetime of snickering at his back, plus the most creative nicknames ever invented by a group of co-workers, FBI or no FBI.

@Det_John_Kimble stop crying. that was definitely some white dancing.

Take it easy, Det. I am as white as they come. I am just saying that the dancing and the stupidity in this incident promise a life of regret for this guy. And lots and lots of jokes at his expense.

@John.Brown so due to your personal interactions with FBI agents, and supported by this one video, you castigated all FBI agents as inept.

But somehow, when victims have had violent personal interactions with cops in cities you've never worked in, they are always wrong and the cops are always right?

Please, clarify.

@Det_John_Kimble Don't call him a dickhead. His comment was funny and astute.

You were tagged in that one not him, or did you forget how that works? You find anything against whites funny.

Clicked reply on your name and comment, if the site aint working I can't help it. Besides you're one of the only ones here I curse at. And occasionally ShelbyHole and one other troll.

@Det_John_Kimble again, you didn't tag anyone, anywhere. Your excuse doesn't play here.

Who, in their right mind, would do a back flip in a bar with a pistol in their belt? @John.Brown, I agree with your assessment of FBI agents...not all agents but often enough when I dealt with them, I held on to my ass and checked my wallet. I have worked extensively with the FBI and other federal agencies and the FBI is a difficult, frustrating and media oriented agency to work with. However I have had outstanding and stellar cooperation from The Marshals, DEA, ATF and IRS.

Decades ago our police academy instructors told us that two things would get us in a jam on the job: booze and women. If the agent is found to have been legally intoxicated, the BEST thing which will happen to him will be a posting to a field office in Alaska.
