These last twelve months have been a season of discontent for the nation’s top law enforcement agency.
After rolling revelations of obfuscation, obstruction, collusion and general incompetence at the highest levels of the bureau, this weekend demonstrated things aren’t any better at the bottom of the totem pole.
While ‘getting jiggy with it’ at a local bar in Denver over the weekend, a yet-to-be-named undercover FBI agent lost his weapon while performing a backflip.
That was bad enough. Then, whilst attempting to retrieve said weapon from the dance floor, Agent X managed to grab it by the trigger and discharge it.
Luckily the bullet hit only one patron in the leg who was pronounced perfectly fine at the hospital.
Foreheads at agency headquarters are red from all the facepalming lately.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
An off-duty FBI agent allegedly discharged his firearm in a crowded Denver bar early Saturday, shortly after losing the weapon while crushing a solo routine on the dance floor.
Eyewitness video of the incident — obtained by local ABC affiliate Denver7 — shows a man alleged to be an FBI agent busting out a series of slick freestyle dance moves inside a circle of cheering bar patrons at Mile High Spirits in central Denver.
For a finale, the man crouches into a squat and launches into an awkward backflip, rotating about 180 degrees before landing on his hands and slamming his feet on to the floor. The force of his acrobatics jars loose the pistol tucked into his pants at the small of his back, and it tumbles harmlessly to the floor.
That’s when things go downhill in the blink of an eye.
