Attorneys for Wade alleged his former wife barricaded herself in the home for several hours, refusing to let Wade's sister in or the boys out. By then, sheriff's police officers were called to the home and were unable to get Funches-Wade to respond to their knocks on the door or calls, said department spokesman Frank Bilecki. Police gained access to a neighbor's residence, enabling officers to see that the two children were playing with two adults, he said. "Then it became a waiting game," Bilecki said. When Funches-Wade later exited her house without the children, police attempted to arrest her for allegedly violating a court order, but she resisted, Bilecki said. Funches-Wade struggled with officers who tried to handcuff her and tried to moved back behind her home's security fence, Bilecki said. Another woman tried to pull her behind the fence as well, he said. As officers succeeded in handcuffing her, Funches-Wade said she was asthmatic and short of breath, Bilecki said. An ambulance was called and she was transported to St. Margaret Mercy Hospital in Dyer. Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one account of resisting arrest, according to Bilecki. The friend who tried to assist her was also charged. According to Bilecki, Funches-Wade spent Saturday night in the hospital and Sunday night in a suburban lockup. She was released from custody Monday after posting $10,000 bond, he said.She was charged with attempted child abduction, unlawful visitation interference and resisting arrest. In court Tuesday, Dwayne's attorney asked judge to to suspend Siohvaughn's visitation rights. Meanwhile, her her attorneys moved to withdraw from representing her, saying they are "in adverse positions." This is at least the 10th attorney who has bailed on her. Oh, girl. A mess!
Siohvaughn Wade Probably Forgot to Take Her Meds -- Again
Poor Siohvaughn Funches-Wade. The reportedly emotionally unstable (read: cuckoo crazy!) and violent ex-wife of NBA baller Dwyane Wade has lost it again. In March 2011, a judge awarded full custody of her 10- and 5-year-old sons to Dwayne after a bitter custody battle. She was arrested Saturday after a stand-off with Chicago police when she refused to hand over the boys to Dwayne's sister so they could travel to Miami to spend Father's Day with their father.
