Miami Heat: Dwyane Wade dealing with custody issue during Finals, wife Siohvaughn arrested

MIAMI, Fla. -- Dwyane Wade is asking a Chicago judge to suspend his ex-wife's right to visitation with their two children after a weekend incident that he says delayed the boys' return to his custody and led to her arrest.

Wade's attorney was in court Tuesday morning to have the petition heard, hours before the Miami Heat guard was to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. A hearing is set for June 26.

According to the filing, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade "barricaded herself" at her home for several hours Saturday and refused to allow Wade's sister inside to pick the boys up for their flight to Miami. Cook County officials say she was charged with attempted child abduction, unlawful visitation interference and resisting arrest.
