TBI's Most Wanted
Fox 17's Scott Couch has the details in tonight's T-B-I's most wanted.
Ernest Smith is a man whose history with police began 13-years-ago just months after he turned 19.
Since then, it's been one arrest after another.
He's now wanted for attempted murder.
The tbi says smith poured a pot of boiling water on his girlfriend during an argument and then beat her with the pot.
"it caused her to have some severe burns over about 35-percent of her body -- upper body -- face, chest, stomach and her legs. she was in the burn unit, hurt pretty badly"
That happened in Memphis but police say smith spends as much or more of his time here in Nashville.
Scott couch/fox 17 news says "according to the TBI Smith can't read or write and because of that has worked mostly manual labor jobs in recent years including restaurant work. but right now, authorities have reason to believe he's working for a landscaping company."
Smith's criminal history includes arrests for drugs, theft and assault.
Agents say he should be considered dangerous.
Ernest Smith was born in 1976.
He's 6'1 and about 230-pounds... and has a scar on his left hand.
If you see him, call 1-800-tbi-find.
Scott Couch, Fox 17 news.
Because Smith is one of the T-B-I's top 10-most wanted suspects a thousand dollar reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest.
