The victim said in court he holds “holds no personal grudge,” because “I’ve done stupid things at bars to impress girls, too.”
An off-duty FBI agent who accidentally shot a man in June while dancing at a Denver bar has reached a plea deal and will not serve jail time.
Chase Bishop, 30, had been in the middle of a dance circle at the Mile High Spirits bar around 12:45 a.m. when he did a backflip, which caused his gun to fall out of his pants. When he picked it up, the gun went off, hitting a man in the leg.
Video of the incident was captured and spread widely online.
The injured man was brought to the hospital with non-life-threatening wounds.
Bishop was brought to the police station for questioning before being released to an FBI supervisor, Denver police officer Marika Putnam told BuzzFeed News at the time.
On Friday, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann announced Bishop had pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and would be sentenced to two years of probation. He will not serve any jail time.
According to the Denver Post, Bishop was also fined $1,200 and ordered to pay restitution to the man he shot, 24-year-old Tom Reddington.
Bishop reportedly apologized to the victim in court, saying he’s “extremely sorry for everything he’s gone through.”
