The FBI agent whose gun accidentally went off at a Colorado nightclub earlier this month is facing criminal charges.
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. The video shows Bishop's handgun falling to the floor mid-flip, then discharging into the surrounding crowd with a loud pop when he reaches to recover it.
Tom Reddington, 24, was left shot in the leg and reportedly will have to undergo vascular surgery to fix a major artery.
Reddington was taken to the hospital in good condition, police said.
The agent then immediately tucks the firearm into his waistband and walks away.
Mr Bishop will be arraigned on a charge of second-degree assault.

It personally didn't affect me much but obviously I have people close to me that are affected by this more than me. I always said that it was a lie and yet people continued saying that I should not go to the national team.
According to the jail records, the 29-year-old Bishop was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday and has been booked into the Downtown Denver Detention Center. The Denver District Attorney's Office has not filed formal charges against Bishop, but spokeswoman Maro Casparian said charges will likely be announced Wednesday.
Bishop's attorney, David Goddard, told ABC News the ordeal has been "devastating" to both his client and Reddington.
Chase Bishop presented himself to the Denver Sheriff's Department on Tuesday.
"It's weird. It's beyond freakish", Reddington said, describing the incident.
The arrest comes a week after video of the incident went viral and raised questions as to why Bishop was not initially taken into custody.
"It is shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules", the posting said.
