DENVER (Reuters) - An ex-FBI agent who accidentally shot and wounded a Denver bar patron in June after performing a dance-floor back flip pleaded guilty on Friday to misdemeanor assault under a plea deal that spares him from serving jail time, prosecutors said.

Chase Bishop, 30, pleaded guilty to third-degree assault in Denver District Court for shooting Thomas Reddington in the leg at the Mile High Spirits and Distillery, prosecutors said in a statement.
======================================
Cop a plea & cop a career at age 30. I think the FBI is better off without this guy.

TOP DEFINITION
cop
to get, receive, purchase, steal, or have

Good, what a dumbass.

Goodness, I think this is the first time an avowed conservative has agreed with something I posted. Must be the phases of the Moon. (pun intended)

He's a dumbass, but I would wager since the guy who got shot is most likely going to get a helluva settlement from the FBI and is alive I don't see why this ex-FBI agent (thank goodness on the ex part) should receive jail time.

Yeah, I’m good with this. The victim will be compensated, and the offender, who had no ill intent, never serves in law enforcement again.

They could have hit him with more serious crimes, like reckless endangerment, reckless disregard, etc.
