Showing off your best dance moves while carrying a loaded weapon is a horrible idea. One FBI agent is in hot water after finding that out the hard way.
Thomas Reddington was in a Colorado nightclub called Mile High Spirits Tasting Room when he was shot in the leg by a random guy dancing on the dance floor. Reddington told Good Morning America, I heard a loud bang and I thought some idiot set off a firecracker. Then I looked down ... all of a sudden from the knee down my leg became completely red. And that's when it clicked in my head, 'Oh, I've been shot.'"
The unnamed FBI agent in the video is now under investigation and facing many charges for the gun discharging in the night club. The incident was a bad accident but was due to poor handling of his weapon. I'm not sure he needed to be dropping it low when he had a loaded gun in his waist. Not to mention, the club probably has rules against firearms in the business and it's unclear if he was drinking.
Reddigton said he isn't angry with the agent, "I don’t want to ruin his life. I just want a private call from this guy."
Wow! That could've been deadly! He's lucky.
