Posted at 7:26 AM, Oct 18, 2018


DENVER, Colorado — The FBI agent who shot a man at a Denver nightclub when his weapon fell from his waistband while he was performing a backflip is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning at 11:30 a.m. Eastern to enter a plea. 

Chase Bishop, 29, faces one count of second-degree assault, a fourth-degree felony. In July, Bishop's attorney revealed that a plea offer had been made to his client. Denver District Attorney's Office spokesman Ken Lane confirmed the existence of the offer at that time but said the details were not disclosed in court and thus won't be disclosed unless the deal is made. 

In a new update ahead of Thursday's hearing, Lane says there is no information about any plea deal in the works.

Bishop turned himself in on the charge in early June. The shooting happened in the early morning hours of June 2 at the Mile High Spirits club.
