Siohvaughn Wade Taken Into Custody!
After Siohvaughn Wade failed to show up to her divorce hearing with Dwyane Wade yesterday, the law put out a warrant for her arrest. She still never responded or made an appearance, so she was arrested and taken into custody this morning in Chicago. She arrived on the scene with her necessary $10,000 bond.
We've got the details when you read on...
Yetserday's hearing was where Dwyane's lawyer was going to ask for physical custody of their 2 young sons. And Siohvaughn decided to pull a no show act. But Sioh claims she didn't show because her lawyer was involved in a car accident:
An arrest warrant had been issued for Siohvaughn Wade by the judge in the divorce case on Monday. Cook County deputies took her into custody at the Daley Center shortly after 11 a.m. after she arrived with her attorney, officials say.
Cook County Circuit Judge Marya Nega ordered that Wade post $10,000 bail.
Wade "arrived at the Daley Center, with her attorney, around 11:15 a.m.," Cook County sheriff spokesman Steve Patterson said. "She also arrived with the required $10,000 bond for her to be released."
Nega issued the warrant Monday, saying she was tired of what she called a pattern of behavior by Siohvaughn Wade throughout her contentious divorce from the basketball player and Chicago native.
"When things don't go according to Mrs. Wade's way all of a sudden the phone's turned off," said Nega, clearly exasperated when Siohvaughn Wade's attorney explained she had not been able to reach her client.
Dwayne Wade's attorney had planned to ask during the Monday hearing that his client be given physical custody of the couple's two boys, ages 8 and 2.
The judge said Siohvaughn Wade had refused to comply with other orders. For example, Nega said, Siohvaughn Wade has not followed an order to make sure the couple's two children talk to their father every day. Nega also noted the children were not at their Chicago school last week to be picked up by Dwyane Wade's sister as the judge had ordered.
The judge said her main concern was what the couple's ongoing divorce was doing to the children and suggested she may order custody be given to Dwyane Wade.
"Maybe it's time for the kids to go live with Dad for a month or two," the judge said.
Siohvaughn Wade's attorney, Marsha Fisher, tried to take some blame for her client's failure to appear Monday. Fisher said Wade had learned Fisher had been in a car accident and apparently thought she did not have to show up in court.
"The fact that you had a car accident does not excuse Mrs. Wade not being here," the judge said.
This ish is getting uglier and uglier....
