FBI Agent To Face Charges In Shooting At LoDo Nightclub

Chase Bishop, 29, is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning and has been booked into the Downtown Denver Detention Center, per the jail records.

'If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then'. Any additional charges could be filed after his blood-alcohol test results are complete.

Bishop, who had left the city shortly after the incident, turned himself into Denver Police on Tuesday before he was formally charged.

In a bystander video obtained by KMGH, Bishop, who was off-duty at the time, can be seen dancing at 12:45 a.m. June 2 at Mile High Spirits Distillery and Tasting Bar as onlookers crowd around, smiling and laughing.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, cellphone footage allegedly shows the agent's gun fire when he attempts to pick it up after it falls from his trousers on the dance floor. Bishop was released to an Federal Bureau of Investigation supervisor that night, and was not arrested.

Spokeswoman Amy Sanders said: "The FBI will continue to fully cooperate with the Denver Police Department and the Denver District Attorney's Office as this matter proceeds through the judicial process".

The gun fell to the floor and, as the agent went to grab it, it fired a shot. He then placed the gun in his waistband and walked off the dance floor with his hands in the air, the video shows.

Multiple sources told 9Wants to Know that Bishop is not assigned to the Denver office and works out of Washington D.C. All of a sudden from the knee down it became completely red.

In a statement posted on Facebook two days after the incident, Mile High Spirits bar said one of its "innocent patrons was shot" because of the agent's "misconduct".
