Chase Bishop, who is based in the bureau's Washington Field Office, has been booked into jail but has not been formally charged by the Denver district attorney, the office tweeted Tuesday.

Mr Bishop, 29, turned himself in at the Denver Sheriff's Department and was charged with second-degree assault.

After the shooting, Bishop was taken to Denver police headquarters but was released to his Federal Bureau of Investigation supervisor.

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

The gun fell to the floor and, as the agent went to grab it, it fired a shot. During the flip, his gun falls out of his trousers and when Bishop picks it up, the gun fires.

"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", she said.

The distillery/bar in question, Mile High Spirits, has asked some very pertinent questions of the Federal Bureau of Investigation: namely why one of their officers was in their bad with a loaded pistol, participating in dance-offs and doing backflips.

A man was shot in the leg by that bullet and survived, but the victim's lawyer says he was seriously injured.

Denver police have said Bishop was dancing at a nightclub in the early hours of June 2 when the gun fell from his waistband holster and hit the floor. "Then it clicked that I've been shot".

"We sat down at one of those picnic tables - I heard a loud bang and I thought some idiot set off a firecracker", Reddington told ABC News.

Mile High Spirits said on its Facebook page that the bar's management was "deeply saddened" by the incident.

The firearm went off when the agent picked it up.
