VIDEO: Off-Duty FBI Agent Accidentally Shoots Man While Dancing At Bar

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.
