An off-duty Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who accidentally shot a man in the leg after his gun slipped from its holster while he was performing a backflip in a bar has appeared in court on a second-degree assault charge. The incident happened about 12:45 a.m. on June 2 at the Mile High Spirits bar.

He has been charged with one count of second-degree assault, Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said Tuesday.

The FBI agent who police say accidentally shot someone when his extreme dance moves caused his gun to drop to the floor has been charged with assault.

"If an additional charge needs to be filed after further evidence is received, we can file those charges then".

Additional charges could be filed, after police receive blood alcohol content test results, said the district attorney's office.

Sanders said the field office would fully cooperate with Denver police and prosecutors "as this matter proceeds through the judicial process".

He is due to appear in court on Wednesday.
