LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- The driver of a car that slammed into a local bus stop made his first court appearance in court Monday morning. It was on the same day that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department released an arrest report detailing more information on that horrific crash.

Gary Lee Hosey Jr. said to police he had been drinking early Thursday morning with friends at a nearby bar. But according to his arrest report he told police he only had one beer, a Budweiser.

Then he told police he got into his girlfriend’s car and says he was speeding because he had to get it home in time for her to get to work.

Instead, he ended up at Spring Mountain and Decatur, where he slammed into the bus stop, killing four people.

Monday morning, Hosey made a tearful first appearance in court to face four charges of DUI causing death.

The judge delayed the arraignment until Friday because prosecutors are still awaiting blood test results and other medical reports before formally charging Hosey.

Hosey's lawyer, Caitlin McAmis, asked the judge to release Hosey because no charges have been filed, but he quickly shot that down, ordering Hosey to remain jailed without bail.

One of the victims who survived, 29-year-old Zakeeyah Corner, was readmitted into the hospital after being released over the weekend.

There were no family members of any victims in the courtroom Monday, but several members of Hosey's family attended.

Hosey failed a breathalyzer test the morning of the accident, blowing over the legal limit of 0.08. At this time, it is not known how high his blood level was.

The police report was very vague about that, stating only it was over the legal level. His next appearance in court is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. Friday.
