Dwyane Wade's Ex-Wife
Mug Shot After
Child Abduction Arrest


Exclusive Mug Shot

TMZ has obtained the mug shot taken by Dwyane Wade's ex-wife ... moments after she was arrested this weekend for allegedly attempting to abduct the former couple's two children.

A rep for the Cook County Sheriff's Office released a statement saying, "Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest."

Funches-Wade's bond was set at $10,000 ... which she posted. She's set to appear in court again in August.

Wade -- who's currently in the middle of the NBA Finals -- has been at war with his ex ever since they divorced back in 2010. Wade was awarded primary custody of their two boys ... and Siohvaughn has visitation rights ... but she's clearly not happy with the current arrangement.

The financial details of their divorce are not yet finalized -- and in recent court docs, Wade said his ex has been using the children as "the proverbial pawns in this contentious dissolution of marriage action."

Wade wants the judge to suspend Siohvaughn's visitation rights because of the incident that led to her arrest.

Wade and the Miami Heat are set to square off against the Oklahoma City Thunder in just a few hours.

A judge in Chicago ordered sheriff’s deputies to take Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade’s estranged wife into custody after she failed to show up for a Monday divorce hearing....The judge said Siohvaughn Wade had refused to comply with other orders....

Siohvaughn Wade has repeatedly thwarted Dwyane Wade’s efforts to visit his children or talk with them on the phone. Pritikin said she even once called police when Dwyane Wade showed up at the couple’s Miami home to pick them up, falsely telling officers there was a warrant out for the basketball player’s arrest.



http://articles.nydailynews.com/2009-02-08/gossip/17916452_1_siohvaughn-james-pritikin-dwyane-wade


Wade's estranged wife, Siohvaughn, dropped her accusation that he gave her a sexually transmitted disease.
Her lawyer, Dorene Marcus, wouldn't comment on whether Siohvaughn had been misdiagnosed in 2007 when she first made her claim or on whether it was true that she smashed his trophies and other treasures when she found out, as a source tells us.

Basketball star Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife has filed a federal lawsuit against her ex-husband’s divorce attorney and Dolton Police, alleging they framed her for child abduction.

Siohvaughn Funches-Wade — who behaved increasingly erratically while losing a bitter and widely publicized child custody battle to the Miami Heat guard last year — claims in the lawsuit she was “violently attacked” by Dolton cops at her south suburban home in June 2012.

She says Dwyane Wade’s attorney James Pritikin “conspired” with Dolton officers and Wade’s pal, New Lenox mayor Tim Balderman to have her falsely arrested for child abduction for failing to turn over her kids to her ex as directed by a judge.

Though the charges were later dropped, Pritikin at the time used the incident to argue that Dwyane Wade should be given full-time custody of the couple’s two young sons.

Funches-Wade, who is acting as her own attorney, says she suffered a torn rotator cuff, asthma attack and a panic attack due to her rough treatment during the arrest.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages in excess of $50,000, isn’t the first Funches-Wade has filed in recent months.

In December she launched a separate suit against Dwyane Wade in the Cook County Circuit Court, alleging her high school sweetheart, who she grew up with in south suburban Robbins, was physically abusive to her during their marriage.

And after rattling through a dozen attorneys during her long court battles with her ex, Funches-Wade last July staged a sit-down protest outside the Daley Center, holding a large handwritten sign with the words “NBA Miami Heat star, mother of his children on the streets.”

The basketball star was ordered to pay her $5 million and give her their former mansion in South Holland and four cars part of their divorce settlement last year.

Pritikin and Balderman did not return calls seeking comment Tuesday afternoon.

Wade’s Heat lost the NBA Finals in five games on Sunday.

Because by law she's entitled! Marriage is a "TEAM" effort, and they both share the work load no matter what their different duties are. He made a committment to her when he said "I do". Marriage shouldn't be a onesided disposable committment, although everything in today's society is disposable.

can't tell if this is satire or just very bad logic....

I'd say by all the evidence that she's an all around terrible person to be with, the fact she got $5 million along with a mansion and multiple luxury cars is the most expensive "disposable" commitment ever.

Marriage, like any personal relationship, is whatever you want it to be. Pretending that you should be committed to a life of shared misery because of one bad decision to sign a piece of paper is absurdly stupid. Marrying her was obviously a bad decision. People do stupid **** when they're 20 years old.

Is Roy Hibbert a poor human being because he doesn't come to play nearly as often as he probably should? He's probably the "worst" human being on the Pacers given his conduct on the floor, yet he's also the guy that's providing free seats for the entire season for a section of fans who otherwise might not be able to afford it....

I'm as immersed in basketball as anyone here, but we're giving ourselves far too much credit when we believe we can judge someone as a person by what we see them do on a basketball court. Again, nobody here would want to be broken down like that over what they do on the clock.

Since nothing of substance has actually been gained, this is a bit of a strawman argument. A lot of talking and complaining and more awareness, sure. The traditional roles are still there.

I don't disagree with you per se, but there are things more important to that movement than women getting the upper hand in divorce settlements.

Well, let's just boil it down to this specific situation is. He holds custody of the children and cares for them, and IIRC she holds not even visitation rights, right? (I could be wrong)

So she is getting a cool 5 mill to.... do nothing?

Sorry, I don't believed in entitlement when it comes to divorces. Unless she was his teammate on the court or alongside him in his commercials and sponsors, she's not entitled to a single dime. It's his money. I do believe that if she had custody of the kids, that he needs to do whatever. However, I see it from the perspective that he's taking care of his kids not necessarily her.

I might have agreed to an alimony check of $50K a month, then I would told her to kick bricks and don't contact me every again except to visit her kids.

Those gender roles have been dead for a while. However, I grew in a generation and household where both of my parents had to be the breadwinner and homemaker.

Plus, I've been a strong advocate for Father's Rights for a very long time as a result of my personal experiences. I believe so strongly in our rights that I genuinely get upset when single mothers try to "hijack" Father's Day with the belief they're fathers, because they raise their sons. However, I know that I'm the minority.

Traditional gender roles are basically dead in today's society, well at least on the East Coast, not sure about other parts of the country. I am married and don't know a single married couple that can afford to have on breadwinner and one homemaker. That's turned into a 20th century anachronism in our society and economy.

Will these changes ever move into divorce law? Eh, get back to me when women aren't make 70 cents on the dollar to a man.

To me its a personal responsibility thing. If you don't want to get stuck paying alimony payments, how about not get married when you're 20 years old like Dwayne Wade did and then start having kids in your early twenties. Men need to think about these things more closely, fair or not. Sure when you're that age you're physically capable of doing it but I'm a lot different than I was at 20 than I am at 28. People need to make better decisions.

Except men still make more money on average than women for doing the same job and they still hold 99% of all of the positions of power to make any changes, so no they aren't dead, everyone simply likes to say that they are. The breadwinner in 62% of married households is still the husband.

I'm not at all blind to the hardships of men when it comes to things like alimony and child custody. I'm just saying that women have it a thousand times worse in the overall picture.

Also, a few idiots trying to start a twitter trend does not mean women are trying to "hijack" father's day. Everyone having their little voice these days means any group can easily be misrepresented.

I know this is extreme, but this is exactly what Nazi's argued as they were being rounded up for prosecution.

DWade makes money to put a ball through a hoop, not to deliever high flying elbows to the side of other player's skulls. Dismissing his behavior on court as his "job" when he can perform his job without said behavior, is a cop out.

Flailing about with flops, and cheap shots, aren't tied to his job. Those are things HE chooses to do.

This is the worst analogy ever. I can't even laugh at this. It's offensive and it isn't even parallel on even the sickest level. The Nazi excuse was "I was just following orders," not "that's only what I did for a living."

You just compared Dwyane Wade to men that tortured millions of people to death. Take a step back and think about that. Dwyane Wade has not to my knowledge ever committed a crime on the job. The Nazis were committing crimes even within the standards of their own jobs.
