LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A 19-year-old man, who claimed to have blacked out behind the wheel of a car that plowed into a west Las Vegas restaurant patio, appeared in court Thursday.

Gage Lindsey appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court for a preliminary hearing. A judge pushed back any proceedings, though, to Dec. 3.

Las Vegas Metro police said Lindsey was driving a vehicle on westbound Sahara Avenue near Arville Street, when the car veered into the opposing side of traffic and then into the patio area of the Egg & I restaurant on April 1.

Police said 10 people were injured as a result of the wreck.

In police documents, Lindsey was seen discarding a pill he claimed was Xanax. Lindsey later admitted to having problems with drugs in the past but said he hadn't taken any before the crash.

Lindsey was charged with driving under the influence, reckless driving and attempting to leave the scene of an accident. His bail was set at $500,000.

Lindsey has been held at Clark County Detention Center ever since the April 1 wreck.
