A court hearing has been reset for Feb. 5 for a Las Vegas teenager accused of plowing a speeding car into a crowded restaurant last April, injuring 10 people.

Defense attorney Sean Sullivan said Tuesday the preliminary hearing for 19-year-old Gage James Lindsey was pushed back to allow for preparation of evidence and experts.

Lindsey has pleaded not guilty and is being held on $500,000 bail pending a judge's decision whether he'll stand trial on felonies including four counts of driving under the influence of drugs.

He could face more than 80 years in prison if he's convicted.

Prosecutors say Lindsey had Xanax and more than three times the legal limit of marijuana in his blood when he crashed April 1 into the Egg & I restaurant on Sahara Avenue.
