DENVER – The dancing FBI agent accused of shooting a man at a Denver bar will be allowed to travel back to Washington D.C. after he posted bond and made his first appearance Wednesday on a felony assault charge.
The hearing for Chase Bishop, 29, lasted less than 10 minutes. The judge told Bishop to stay at least 100 yards away from 24-year-old Tom Reddington, the man who was shot in the bar June 2 after Bishop dropped his gun while performing a backflip. Bishop was ordered to have zero contact with Reddington as well.
Bishop posted a $1,000 bond Tuesday night and will be able to go back to the nation’s capital, where he lives and works.
Wearing a dark blue suit in court, Bishop did not speak during the brief proceeding, nor did his attorney, David Goddard, enter a plea on his behalf. When he was asked as he was leaving the courtroom if he felt he owed Reddington an apology, he didn’t respond.
