"Additional charges may be filed based on the results of a pending blood alcohol content analysis", the Denver District Attorney's office said in a statement on Tuesday.

Chase Bishop, 29, is charged with second-degree assault in the June 2 shooting at Mile High Spirits, a distillery and dance club in Denver. Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said the assault charge was filed before that report comes back "because sufficient evidence has been presented to file it".

The agent's bail has been set at $1,000.

The bullet Bishop fired ended up striking the leg of 24-year-old Tom Reddington, a fellow patron of Mile High Spirits who was seated at a picnic table nearby.

Reddington told ABC News last week that he thought someone was setting off a firecracker before realizing he had been shot.

Authorities did not initially identify the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent because he was not arrested at the time, Denver police community resource officer Marika Putnam said. The victim was treated and released from a hospital. All of a sudden from the knee down it became completely red. "And that's when it clicked in my head, 'Oh, I've been shot'".

The FBI is now conducting an internal investigation into the shooting.

The video shows the off-duty agent reaching for the gun and allegedly accidentally firing the weapon, hitting another patron in the leg. The FBI also has not released any information about its policy for agents carrying weapons while off duty and in alcohol establishments. It went off when it went to retrieve it.
