FBI agent who accidentally shot a man after back flip in Denver club is charged with assault
An off-duty FBI agent who, authorities say, accidentally shot someone after his gun flew from his holster as he was doing a back flip inside a Denver bar has been charged with second-degree assault.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office said Chase Bishop, 29, turned himself in Tuesday and was charged with the Class 4 felony, punishable by two to six years in prison and a fine of up to $500,000. The Denver Sheriff’s Department inmate database shows that Bishop has been booked in the Downtown Detention Center.
I always thought assault required intent and that this would have been processed as reckless endangerment or something along that vein. But I suppose the DA knows what he's doing.
Lurking in the corridors of my mind.
