The vehicle was found parked at a gym, KAGS reported. When College Station Police Department officers confronted Puga, he said he would have outrun them had he not taken Xanax and cocaine earlier that day.
KBTX reported Beatty is in critical condition at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center in Houston. She has had four surgeries, WFAA reported.
"You can tell, like, that she's fighting for her life and that she's fighting to be here and that she wants to live," Beatty's friend Bri Copeland told KBTX. "She's still in very critical condition, we're just worried about her brain right now, it's the main thing we're worried about."
Puga has been charged with intoxication assault, evading arrest and accident involving serious bodily injury. He was booked at Brazos County Jail Saturday and released the next day on bond, according to jail records.
