LAS VEGAS (AP) - A man accused of firing a gun during a backstage Thunder From Down Under robbery attempt refused to attend an initial court appearance, and a Las Vegas judge reset the date.

Court officers said Joey Kadmiri balked Friday at leaving jail for his appearance on felony attempted murder, armed robbery, burglary and weapon charges.

Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Deborah Lippis reset Kadmiri's hearing for Monday.

Kadmiri also faces kidnapping, assault with a weapon, coercion and battery charges in a November domestic violence case.

A lawyer hasn't been assigned for him.

A member of the Australia-themed dance revue was treated at the Excalibur for minor face injuries after the incident Tuesday.

Kadmiri was hospitalized with facial injuries and a black eye after being subdued by several performers.
