According to an Associated Press report released today, Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, has been arrested for “attempted child abduction” after forcefully neglecting pre-determined visitation rules for the pair’s sons, allegedly locking the house when Wade’s sister attempted to pick up the children in Chicago and refusing to open the door. Tim Reynolds has the story, via The Miami Herald: “Dwyane Wade has asked a Chicago judge to suspend his ex-wife’s right to visitation with their two children after a weekend incident that delayed the boys’ return to his custody and led to her arrest. Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin, filed an emergency motion and appeared in court Tuesday to have it heard, hours before the Miami Heat guard was to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. A hearing was set for June 26, which would be the date of Game 7 if the Heat and Thunder extend the series to its limit. Wade told The Associated Press that his sons have been with him in Miami since about 6 a.m. Sunday – “That’s what mattered most to me, getting them here to be with me on Father’s Day,” he said – and that the incident has not adversely affected his play in the championship series. Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest, Cook County Sheriff’s spokesman Frank Bilecki told The AP on Tuesday. Another woman at the home at the time, Nadgee Alarcon, was charged with one count of resisting arrest, Bilecki said. All the charges are misdemeanors. Funches-Wade posted $10,000 bond on Monday, Bilecki said, and is due back in court in August. It was not known if she had an attorney.”
