Denver police have confirmed that an FBI agent accidentally shot a person in the leg while dancing at a bar over the weekend. According to a video that’s gone viral online, the off-duty agent was dancing early Saturday when his gun fell out of his holster – as he did a backflip.
It seems an FBI agent was more interested in showing off fancy moves, rather than properly stowing his weapon. As he reached to retrieve it, the weapon went off – a bullet striking another patron. Most disturbingly, the agents reaction: he basically throws up his hands in a “who me” kind of expression.
The good news? The man who was shot was last listed in good condition and is expected to recover. As for the agent, he was taken to police headquarters before being released to his FBI supervisor. No charges have yet been filed and the FBI has declined to comment.
See the disturbing video below.
