In the now viral video, Bishop can be seen dancing and then doing a backflip.

Chase Bishop has been charged with second-degree assault and is in custody in Denver.

Chase Bishop is pictured in this undated photo released by the Denver Sheriff's Department.

An FBI agent did a back-flip and his gun fell out at Mile High Spirits bar near downtown Denver, June 4, 2018.

Additional charges could be filed based on the results of toxicology tests, which have not yet been received.

A former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent told 9NEWS that an agent who accidentally discharges a weapon will be automatically suspended for three days without pay.

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 bullet hit the victim in an artery in his leg, according to previous news reports. "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".

Our reporting partner, 9News in Denver, said that multiple sources told them that Bishop works out of Washington D.C. and is a decorated former Army captain who served in Afghanistan.

The injured 24-year-old appeared on Good Morning America, when he told reporters it he didn't realise he'd been shot until he saw blood running down his leg. "And that's when it clicked in my head, 'Oh, I've been shot'".
