The FBI Agent is in deep _ _._ _! Totally inexcusable incident. Wonder what his off duty gun was. Maybe SIG like the one that the military had problems with. Regardless, he will be held to be at fault and he was.

Can you say career altering moment?

If he had to pick it up why and where did he put it down to begin with?

He had the semi inside the waistband in small of back. He was doing some rather physical dancing and did a backflip. The gun fell out of his waistband. It did not fire when upon hitting the ground. He picked it up and the gun fired. Obviously he put his finger on the trigger. Based upon his dancing I would,say he was rather uninhibited and likely intoxicated.

The gun gun was turned over to an FBI supervisor and the agent was dismissed from employments, if what I read is correct.

and I believe this was appropriate action on the FBI part.
Way to many cases of bad judgement involved here. and think there are some still out there walking amongst us that have the same thought process, thankfully not many.

From what I gather it came out of his holster and hit the floor when he did a back flip and "discharged" when he picked it up hitting a man in the leg.
This is why it is a bad idea to pick it up by the trigger.;D

you got to admit though this is an interesting turn on the old Glock leg scenario, now you shoot someone else in the foot /leg instead of yourself!

He’s lucky he didn’t shoot himself in the ass while reholstering at middle of back.
