Chase Bishop, the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who is accused of accidentally shooting a man at a Denver distillery earlier this month has been arrested on charges of second-degree assault, according to jail records. It shows the agent dancing for the crowd and after he does a backflip, the weapon falls out of the back of his waistband.

Chase Bishop, 29, is being held in the Downtown Detention Center on suspicion of second-degree assault, according to inmate records on the Denver Sheriff Department website. Bishop then put the gun back in his trousers and walked away with his hands up.

The bullet Bishop fired ended up striking the leg of 24-year-old Tom Reddington, a fellow patron of Mile High Spirits who was seated at a picnic table nearby.

A man who identified himself in an interview with Good Morning America as Thomas Reddington was shot in the leg.

He turned himself in on Tuesday morning after an arrest warrant was issued by Denver police, said Maro Casparian, a spokeswoman for the Denver District Attorney's Office.

Bishop is due in court for an advisement hearing on Wednesday. The gun can be seen going off after it fell out of the holster and he went to retrieve it.

Later that day, KDVR reported Bishop was charged with second-degree assault.

Attorney David Goddard asked that Bishop be allowed to travel because he lives and works in Washington, D.C. Prosecutors did not object.

Denver officials said additional charges were possible pending the results of a blood-alcohol-content analysis, which could take another week.

One person was struck in the lower leg and was expected to survive, police said.
