LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A judge denied Thursday a motion to allow a teen driver to be held on house arrest after being charged for a DUI crash at a west Las Vegas restaurant.

Gage Lindsey, 18, is being held at Clark County Detention Center in lieu of $500,000 bail in connection to a crash on April 1 at the Egg & I restaurant on Sahara Avenue near Arville Street. Ten people were seriously injured as a result of the incident, Las Vegas Metro police said.

A judge in Las Vegas Justice Court set his next court date for Aug. 22.

According to an arrest report, Lindsey was driving westbound on Sahara in the far right lane when he veered toward the median, drove into the eastbound lanes of traffic and plowed into the restaurant's patio.

Police said several people hit by the vehicle were actually trapped underneath the car.

An arrest report also said Lindsey and a passenger got out of the vehicle and attempted to flee before being tackled and detained by customers. Lindsey, in the report, was also seen trying to discard a pill he claimed was Xanax.

As the report stated, Lindsey admitted to blacking out, citing drug problems in the past, but claimed he was not on any at the time.

While being questioned by officers, Lindsey, in the report, appeared to be disoriented and was unable to tell the date or day of the week or the time of day. Lindsey, in the report, admitted to having problems with drugs in the past but said he hadn't taken any recently.

After determining Lindsey may have been impaired by drugs, police, in the report, took blood and urine samples from the suspect while he was in custody at Clark County Detention Center.

Lindsey was charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving and attempting to leave the scene of an accident following the crash.
