Dwyane Wade has asked a Chicago judge to suspend his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade visitation after an incident over the weekend which led to her arrest.

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.

According to the filing, the two boys were to be picked up by Wade’s sister around noon Saturday so they could make a 3:05 p.m. flight from Chicago to Miami so they could be in South Florida for the entirety of Father’s Day.

Wade’s sister got no response at the home, and after “several hours” the sheriff’s office was called to send someone to the scene, according to the filing. It also said Funches-Wade attempted to leave the home without the children when one of the responding deputies tried taking her into custody. The boys, at that time, were with Alarcon inside the home, according to the filing.

Wade eventually hired a private jet to bring his sons home early Sunday, and upon their arrival, his older son told him that Alarcon “smacked him on the head,” according to court records.

This situation is so sad. I understand that Siohvaughn is a mother who probably really misses her boys and wants to spend more time with them. But sometimes you simply have to work within the structure presented and try to find a way out. The confusion that her boys must be going through is heartbreaking.
Even though Dwyane has stated that this particular situation hasn’t impacted his play, this didn’t spring out of nowhere. The court is probably a refuge from the drama but I can assure you that it didn’t become a distraction just this weekend.
You can’t continue to handle the situation anyway you please and think it’s going to give you the desired the result. That’s why the boys are in their father’s custody to begin with. The financial terms of their divorce haven’t been resolved yet. SMH To get all the history on this situation, go HERE. Funches-Wade was released on a $10,000 bond.
