Going through and culling photos from a wedding and ran across this one. What happened here? Camera glitch? Memory card? None of the other photos seem to have had this happen. Something to worry about?
Later on in the night, this camera gave an 01 Error saying it can't connect with the lens. I took the lens off and put it back on and it never reoccurred. Has been fine since.

As others have said, this is a corrupt file.
Where were you reading this from?
If from the hard drive, the file is corrupted on the hard drive.
If from the memory card, the file is corrupted on the memory card, although the corruption may be due to the card reader.
CHIMPing the image on your camera does not mean the file on the memory card is good, since the image preview is a derived image. IOW, you aren't looking at the larger image file directly.
I would recommend that you determine where the file is corrupted, and if it is on your memory card, throw the card away. If it is on your hard drive, make sure you have everything backed up and then run a complete drive check, perhaps even replace the drive. File corruption is many times the "canary in the coal mine" for a general failure impending.
