We reported on this crazy incident last weekend and have an update you won’t believe…The man shot by the FBI agent on the dance floor will receive a special gift from the Colorado bar.
Watch the video of the accidental shooting:
Off-duty FBI Agents might want to leave the weapons at home if they plan on doing backflips on the dance floor. Just a suggestion…but seriously? What was this bumbling guy thinking?
The FBI agent was dancing in the middle of a crowd at a Colorado bar when he decided to pull a smooth move and do a backflip on the dance floor. His not-so-smooth move made his gun suddenly fall and as he goes to pick it up, it SHOOTS into the crowd and hits a man’s leg!
The distillery, according to Fox 31, said it’s “shocking that the only shooting to ever occur at our establishment came about as a result of an FBI agent entering our distillery tasting room carrying a loaded firearm without our knowledge, in violation of our rules.”
Management of Mile High Spirits said they plan to speak to the FBI to understand why the off-duty agent was armed in their establishment.
Police interviewed the agent after the shooting before releasing him to an FBI supervisor. The Denver Police Department’s homicide unit is investigating, and charges filed will be determined by the district attorney’s office.
Mile High’s statement said the team is wishing the patron, who was taken to the hospital in good condition after the incident, a quick recovery and added he will receive “complimentary drinks forever.”
