The agent was dancing at Mile High Spirits around 12:45 a.m. when he did a backflip and his gun fell out of his pants, avideo of the incident shows.
When he went to retrieve the gun, it discharged, striking another patron in the leg, the Denver Police Department said in a statement
The victim, a male adult, was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
The agent was taken to the Denver police station for questioning and was later released to a FBI supervisor.
