FBI agent’s gun discharges during dance floor backflip
LOS ANGELES–Police are investigating an off-duty FBI agent’s apparently accidental shooting of a man when the agent did a backflip at a Colorado night club, local media reported Sunday.
A video obtained by local television stations shows the lanky male agent — a crowd off to his side — putting in some energetic dance moves before executing his backflip.
Unfortunately, the move was less of a crowd-pleaser than intended when his gun fell out of his trousers. The agent couldn’t catch it in time before it went off and shot a man in the lower leg.
The shooting victim was recovering in hospital from non-life-threatening injuries, the local ABC television affiliate said.
The agent was taken to police headquarters and then released to an FBI supervisor.
