DENVER — The FBI agent who  shot a man  at a Denver nightclub when his weapon fell from his waistband while he was performing a backflip had been scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning to enter a plea, but the hearing was continued to November at the last minute.

Chase Bishop, 29, faces  one count of second-degree assault , a fourth-degree felony. In July, Bishop's attorney revealed that a plea offer had been made to his client. Denver District Attorney's Office spokesman Ken Lane confirmed the existence of the offer at that time, but said the details were not disclosed in court and thus won't be disclosed unless the deal is made. 

In a new update ahead of Thursday's hearing, Lane says there is no information about any plea deal in the works.

Bishop  turned himself in  on the charge in early June. The shooting happened in the early morning hours of June 2 at the Mile High Spirits club.

After the hearing was continued Thursday, it was reset for Nov. 8.
