COLLEGE STATION – Police are looking for a Burton man wanted for badly beating his girlfriend.
Chad Everett Smith ran out of gas around 1:30 Friday morning at the Texas A&M Poultry Science Headquarters on Harvey Mitchell Parkway. He called his girlfriend to come get him.
When she arrived an hour later, police say Smith got upset and assaulted her, causing serious bodily injury.
Smith then drove his girlfriend’s car to the Cabo Fuels Exxon, down the road, to get gas for his car. There, she was able to alert the clerk to call police.
Smith ran off and is still on the run. His girlfriend was taken to the hospital.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest on aggravated assault charges, a second degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
Anyone with information about the assault or where to find Smith is asked to call the University Police Department at 979-845-2345.
