Over the Father’s Day weekend Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest after she refused to let Dwyane Wade’s sister pick up his kids for a flight to Miami in time for Father’s Day.
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 [an associate of Siovaughn] 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.
Records show Funches-Wade was transferred to a hospital after the incident on Saturday. She told officers she was experiencing shortness of breath and thought she was having an asthma attack.
Dwyane’s attorney filed an emergency motion in court earlier today to ask the judge to suspend his ex-wife’s visitation rights.
This court must take action to protect our minor children from further exposure to the present environment S.L. creates while they are in her care and preventing S.L. from exercising her parenting time in a manner that is harmful to our children.
It’s sad when the adults can’t get it together and the kids are left to suffer in the middle…
