Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is not only participating in the NBA Finals, but he is involved in a custody battle with his former wife that escalated over the weekend, CBS4-Miami reported Tuesday.

Wade's ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches-Wade, was arrested on Monday on two counts of attempted child abduction and unlawful visitation interference.

According to the CBS4 report, Wade's attorney, James Pritikin, filed an emergency motion in court in Chicago on Tuesday to try to suspend the visitation rights of Funches-Wade of the couples two young sons -- Zaire, 10, and Zion, 5.

The couple divorced in 2010.

According to the filing, Wade's sons were scheduled to be picked up by his sister at their mother's Chicago home and taken to the airport to make a flight to Miami.

Wade's sister received no response at Funches-Wade's home and eventually notified the Cook County Sheriff's Office was notified.

The court filing said Funches-Wade attempted to leave the home without the children when one of the deputies tried taking her into custody. The children were with a woman named Nadgee Alarcon at the time of their mother's arrest.

Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest. Alarcon was charged with one count of resisting arrest. All of the charges are misdemeanors. Siovaughn Funches-Wade posted $10,000 bond on Monday and will return to court to face the charges in August.

Funches-Wade was taken to the hospital after the incident, according to records. She told police she was experiencing shortness of breath and thought she was having an asthma attack.
