CHASING CHAD'S DREAM: Albertville policeman moonlights as singer with Nashville dream

Posted: Monday, October 8, 2012 2:27 pm | Updated: 3:49 pm, Mon Oct 8, 2012.

On a misty October morning outside a quiet, neighborhood street in Arab, Chad Bearden grabs a guitar from his vehicle and starts singing, “She’s the one with the mustache,” for a reporter on the scene.

It’s an energetic, impromptu performance of a comedic country song that would sound right at home on the radio alongside one of Brad Paisley’s tongue-in-cheek tunes.

    I am so glad that someone else knows the real Chad Bearden. He is not the "super dad" that this article made him out to be. He is not the "super cop" that this article made him out to be. He does have a good voice and I am not trying to take anything away from that. but the other two thing he is not. This so called "super dad" does have four different children by four different women. He has committed adultery resulting in his fourth child. Chad Bearden has ruined too many lives by his actions. I have know Chad since elementary school and he has always been a user. So before you support Chad Bearden, just think about who and what you are supporting!

    Its kinda disturbing that someone would write about how he manages to find time for both careers with 4 children. Which by th way he only gets 2 of them every other weekend. And on those weekends that he does get them he chooses to go sing instead of spend time with them and drops them off with his ex-wife that actually watches the first 3, because he comitted adultry and had the 4th child. He doesnt keep them but manages to "find time for his careers" huh. Also he does not have 4 children betweem 2 marraiges he has one by each marriage and 2 other childen with 2 other women. SO if you are going to report something like this dont lie and make them sound better than the truth. Thats false reporting, and its not fair to those mothers that have those children that take care of those kids day in and day out and have to let them go with him on the weekend because its "WHAT THE PAPERS SAY" knowing that he isnt going to even spend time with them he is going to let his ex-wife (free babysitter) keep them while he is playing and writing these songs that he "manages to make time for". SO maybe before lying and writing basically a false article on someone you should get all the true facts. Dont make someone out to be something they were never and will not EVER be, please.
