LAS VEGAS (AP) - A teenager accused of plowing a speeding car into a crowded Las Vegas restaurant is being charged with six felonies, including four driving under the influence of drugs counts that could get him a total of 80 years in prison.

Prosecutors said Thursday that 18-year-old Gage James Lindsey had Xanax and more than three times the legal limit of marijuana in his blood in the April 1 crash at the Egg & I restaurant on Sahara Avenue.

He's also charged with reckless driving and leaving the scene before witnesses tackled him and held him for police.

Lindsey stood in handcuffs and stared straight at a judge who refused to reduce his $500,000 bail.

She set an evidence hearing Aug. 22.

Lindsey's lawyer, Sean Sullivan, calls the wreck a tragic accident.
