Bishop then put the gun back in his trousers and walked away with his hands up.

The Denver District Attorney's Office has not filed formal charges against Bishop, but spokeswoman Maro Casparian said charges will likely be announced Wednesday. After an arrest warrant was issued, Bishop turned himself in Tuesday, reported the Denver Post.

Additional charges could also be filed after an analysis of Bishop's blood alcohol content are finished, the DA said.

The gun fell to the floor and, as the agent went to grab it, it fired a shot.

Police have said Bishop was dancing at the downtown bar on June 2 when the gun fell from his waistband holster onto the floor.

Bishop was partying at Mile High Spirits, a distillery and dance club in the Ballpark neighborhood, while off duty.

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.

The injured man, 24-year-old Tom Reddington, suffered a "serious, but not life-threatening" gunshot wound to his lower leg, McCann said.

Special Agent Amy Sanders, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation field office in Denver, declined to comment on Bishop's employment status with the agency.

The man who was shot was identified as Thomas Reddington and he said in an interview that he was able to laugh at the situation.

"I heard a loud bang and I thought some idiot set off a firecracker", Reddington told the show. "And that's when it clicked in my head, 'Oh, I've been shot'".

The firearm went off when the agent picked it up.

"He's welcome at Mile High Spirits to enjoy complimentary drinks forever", they said in a statement published by KDVR.
