[UPDATE] FBI agent GETS GUN BACK after it fires, hits man during botched dance move at bar

Reports indicate Chase Bishop, the FBI agent whose gun discharged during a backflip at a Denver nightclub last month, has been approved to once again carry a concealed weapon.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the 29-year-old was charged with second-degree assault following the incident on June 2 at the Mile High Spirits Distillery and Tasting Bar in Denver.

Video captured by a witness reveals the gun fall to the ground and fire.

Another nightclub patron sustained injuries to his leg when he was struck by the bullet. He is expected to recover.

The man identified as Bishop can be seen in the footage putting his hands up before casually walking out of the frame.

According to CBS News, Denver District Attorney spokesperson Ken Lane confirmed that Bishop can once again carry his gun “so long as it is done in a manner pursuant to FBI policy.”

Though blood-alcohol tests conducted at the time remain sealed, the results reportedly did not lead to any additional charges related to state law that bans individuals from drinking and carrying a firearm.

Prosecutors in the case reportedly agreed to terms described by David Goddard, the attorney representing Bishop. The lawyer said that FBI agents are urged to carry their guns with them even when they are not on duty.

Goddard noted that the man shot in his leg did not object to Bishops request to have his gun rights restored.

The lawyer said his client reached an undisclosed plea deal with prosecutors.
