Messy NBA divorces and baby mama drama are all too common these days. On this Tuesday afternoon, it's the saga of Dwyane Wade's wife making headlines.
Siohvaughn Wade was taken into police custody today in Chicago after bailing on a mandatory hearing yesterday in the estranged pair's ongoing divorce war.
The Cook County Sheriff's Department says Siohvaughn was a wanted woman, and taken into custody this morning when she showed up to court in Chicago.
Yesterday, the court issued an order asking police to track her down.
Why did Siohvaughn Wade skip a mandatory court date?
In court today, Siohvaughn's attorney filed papers claiming that she - the attorney - was involved in a car accident yesterday, and asked that the order be rescinded citing the accident as the reason why Siohvaughn was a no-show.
The judge didn't buy it. Siohvaughn was jailed at 11:15 a.m.
Amusingly, Siohvaughn must have known the car accident excuse wasn't going to work, because court officials say she showed up with her $10,000 bond in hand.
She is therefore now out of custody as of this posting.
Last week, she filed a lawsuit alleging her husband's relationship and heavy petting with Gabrielle Union has caused distress to her and the couple's two children.
Siohvaugh also accused Dwyane of giving her an STD.
