In another sad notch in the belt of domestic family affairs, the ex-wife of Dwyane Wade cut the fool in Dolton, IL over the weekend by delaying the departure of the former couples children on their trip back to their permanent home of Miami, FL.

Siohvaughn Funches-Wade lost custody of the two boys in March 2011 to Dwyane after a contentious legal battle.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times:

Dwyane Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin, said the boys, ages 10 and 5, were visiting their mother in Chicago and were to be turned over to Dwyane Wade’s sister about noon Saturday so they could fly back to Miami for Father’s Day and Game 3 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder.

But Funches-Wade did not answer her phone or doorbell when the sister arrived and police were called to the home, Pritikin said.

Sheriff’s police were unable to enter the property, which is surrounded by a 10-foot high fence, Bilecki said. A neighbor let police onto their property, where deputies could see over the fence and that the children were safe.

“We played a waiting game and she eventually came out,” Bilecki said. “She was placed in handcuffs and then pulled back and started swinging arms towards the officers.”

Not only was she charged with two counts of child abduction, but also “two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest.”

Messy, indeed. And, sad because Siohvaughn Funches-Wade has had an extremely difficult time adjusting to life without her family.

You can see the despair in her eyes in her mugshot. May healing and peace come to not only her, but the entire family, eventually. This is a very serious situation and not something to ridicule her for.

Under the guardianship of Trajil Wade, Dwyane’s sister, the boys did arrive safely back in Miami in time for Father’s Day and their father’s NBA Finals game.
