The ex-wife of basketball star Dwayne Wade was arrested for trying to abduct the two children she shares with Wade. Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was booked on charges of trying to abduct two children and two counts of unlawful visitation interference.
She was also charged for resisting arrest. She posted the bond of $10,000 and was released.
“I haven’t done anything except for what I know is best for my children,” Funches-Wade said in an interview with CBS station WBBM in Chicago. “I opened my gate after realizing a black car was sitting outside of my fence, and from there I was arrested.”
The Wade’s divorce is not finalized yet. The two share custody of the children. Funches-Wade has visitation rights. Wade claims Siovaughn has used the children against him in the divorce even though he has custody.
“Once again, (she) has used the minor children as the proverbial pawns in this contentious dissolution of marriage action,” Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin said. “This court must take action to protect the minor children from further exposure to the present environment (she) creates while they are in her care and preventing (her) from exercising her parenting time in a manner that is harmful to the children.”
Wade is now asking the judge to suspend rights.
