Fugitive Files Needs Help Catching Suspect in Brutal Beating

Posted: Updated:

Tairee White is wanted by Savannah-Chatham Metro Police for aggravated battery.

Detectives say he got into an argument with his girlfriend, then got physical.

"Mr White beat a woman to a point where her orbital or cheekbone is broken and she may lose function in that eye," explained Detective Kevin Grogan.

Police say White has told them several times he would turn himself in, but has never shown up.

"This incident is pretty much an act of cowardice and we can't have people that are going to conduct that type of business out on our streets," said Detective Grogan."When somebody who is 6'2" about 200 lbs beats on somebody that's not even 5' and not even 100 lbs, there's no justification or excuse for that behavior."

Tairee White was last seen at the Westlake Apartments or the Edgewater Estates on Abercorn street.

If you can help find him, call Savannah-Chatham Metro Police or Crimestoppers at 234-2020.

Remember, if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.

"He (White) should be ashamed of what he's done and anyone who's helping him should be equally ashamed," said Grogan. "We don't want anybody like that on the streets of Savannah or anywhere else for that matter."
