The arraignment for Gary Hosey Jr., the man accused of driving drunk into a Las Vegas bus stop and killing four people, was delayed Wednesday for a second time.

The hearing was delayed until Nov. 21 while the court determines whether Hosey will be represented by a public defender, said Dayvid Figler, an attorney hired by Hosey’s family to represent him.

Figler said Hosey wants to retain his hired representation, but the cost is getting expensive for his family. Hosey appeared Wednesday morning in Clark County District Court with attorney Kristina Wildeveld, who has been representing Hosey along with Figler.

Hosey did not enter a plea during the brief hearing Tuesday, Figler said.

The deadly accident happened the morning of Sept. 13 on Spring Mountain Road near Decatur Boulevard. Metro Police say Hosey, 24, was behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo traveling at a high rate of speed when he apparently lost control and struck the bus stop.

Hosey remains in the Clark County Detention Center on $4 million bail.
