He was later found unconscious in the Wichita River.

Texas Department of Corrections officers on horseback and officers with dogs assisted in the search.

He was transported by Air Evac to the 11th street campus of United Regional Hospital where he's listed in critical condition.

He faces charges of Felony Evading Arrest.
