If you really want to get your freak on on the dance floor, it might be prudent to put your piece down. As the Denver Post reports, that is the lesson for an unnamed FBI agent who got a little too jiggy with it Saturday—and of course there's video. The agent was dancing at a Denver nightclub when he did a backflip, and his gun fell to the floor. He scrambled to pick it up, and in the course of doing so accidentally fired the weapon. A man was shot with non-life-threatening injuries, and is listed in good condition, notes the AP. It's unclear whether the FBI agent will be charged. (More FBI agent stories.)
