An off-duty FBI agent was burning up the dance floor at a Denver night club early Saturday when he accidentally shot a man in the leg.

What happened?

A video of the incident shows the agent dancing as a group of scantily-clad women stood watching. He offers what might be his best move — a backflip into a handstand. But the agent's gun fell out of his waistband holster during the spectacle. The agent stumbles, reaches for his gun, accidentally grabs the trigger, and fires one round into a man's leg.

The video was altered to blur out the agent's face.

The mishap happened around 1 a.m. Saturday at Mile High Spirits at 2201 Lawrence St. around 1 a.m. Saturday, KUSA-TV reported.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and his injury was not life-threatening, according to the report.

Were there any charges?

Denver Police took the FBI agent in for questioning before releasing him to an FBI supervisor. The Denver Police’s homicide unit is investigating the incident, and any charges will be determined by the Denver District Attorney’s Office, KUSA reported.
