Dwyane Wade is currently battling the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals.

But the elite shooting guard was faced with an obstacle far greater than guarding Kevin Durant this weekend, when his estranged ex-wife attempted to kidnap the former couple's two children.

A rep for the Cook County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was arrested for allegedly trying to abduct the boys, saying in a statement:

"Siohvaughn Funches-Wade was charged with two counts of attempted child abduction, two counts of unlawful visitation interference and one count of resisting arrest."

She posted $10,000 bond and will appear in court again this August.

Dwyane - who is dating actress Gabrielle Union - has legal custody of the children and will reportedly use this incident to limit Siohvaughn's visitation rights, considering it's not even her first foray into seriously shady behavior.

In the past couple years, Siohvaughn has sued Union for causing emotional distress and also accused Wade of giving her a STD.

Dottie Sandusky, whose disgraced husband Jerry Sandusky is accused of 52 felony counts of child sex abuse, took the stand in his trial Tuesday afternoon.

Dottie Sandusky has stood by her husband, posting his bail, accompanying him to court and issuing a statement last year that proclaimed his innocence.

Whether her remarks will change the direction of the case is an open question, but her testimony, at least early on, focused on how she and Jerry met.

One witness has testified that he was attacked the Sanduskys' basement and tried to cry out for help when Dottie was upstairs, only to be ignored.

Dottie, who is not charged with any crimes, says all the accusers are lying.

Also Tuesday, Sandusky's attorney closely questioned two Pennsylvania state police investigators about whether they coached Jerry Sandusky accusers.

One of the troopers, Cpl. Joseph Leiter, now retired, acknowledged to lawyer Joe Amendola that he told at least one alleged victim of the former Penn State coach that they "wouldn't be alone" if they came forward because "there were others."

Sandusky is accused of molesting 10 children over a 15-year period.

A crazy, self-proclaimed Jungle Bird Man crashed the U.S. Open trophy presentation last night after unheralded Webb Simpson won golf's prestigious title.

Somehow, this odd UK Bird crept past security and stole the show, cutting off NBC's Bob Costas on live TV and doing his bird call before being hauled away.

The Bird admits he had a few beers beforehand ... big surprise.

Jungle Bird Man - see his official Facebook page - says it was a premeditated mission to raise awareness about global deforestation. Makes sense.

"I want people thinking about saving trees," he said.

Hilariously, after security handed the interview crasher over to the San Francisco police, he and the officers were making bird noises at the station together.

They eventually cut him loose because U.S. Open officials did not want to press charges. Classy move on their part. Next on the hit list for the avian wonder?

"The House of Commons," he says, "is the next port of call."

Better beef up security over there fellas.

Roger Clemens may never make it into the Hall of Fame, but the legendary pitcher doesn't need to worry any longer about making it through a prison sentence, either.

He has been acquitted on all counts of lying to a grand jury.

Roger Clemens in Court

Clemens was on trial for six counts of perjury, stemming from a 2008 statement in front of Congress that he never took steroids or Human Growth Hormone.

British police are investigating David Nalbandian for injuring a linesman while kicking an advertising board during Sunday's tennis final at Queen's Club.

Officials ruled that the Argentine had to default the match to Marin Cilic after smashing the sign - and the lineman's legs behind it - with his right foot.

Judge Andrew McDougal could be seen cringing in pain as the player sent part of the sign flying into his leg. Watch the video of his Nalbandian's outburst here:

McDougal was bloodied in the encounter but suffered no other injury. Nalbandian was leading 7-6, 3-4 at the time but was forced to default the match.

By doing so, he forfeited significant prize money and rankings points in the process ... all while injuring a linesman for no reason. Definitely worth it.

What's more, criminal charges may be in the offing.

"We are aware of an incident at the Aegon Championships on June 17," a Scotland Yard spokesman said. "A complaint has been made and the Metropolitan police service is investigating the incident. The allegation is of assault."

NFL star Pacman Jones, the poster child for pro athletes behaving badly, must pay $11.6 MILLION in damages to the victims of a Las Vegas strip club shooting.

Pacman (real name Adam) had been sued by Aaron Cudworth and Thomas Urbanski, two security guards who were shot outside Minxx strip club in February 2007.

The now-famous incident began when Jones "made it rain" with THOUSANDS of $1 bills ... then got pissed when a stripper began taking it without his permission.

A fight ensued outside the club and three people were shot, including Cudworth and Urbanski. Pacman was sued, even though he was not the actual shooter.

A Nevada jury found Pacman Jones responsible and awarded Cudworth $1.3 million in damages. Urbanski, who was paralyzed from the waist down, got $9.6 million.

Urbanski's wife sued for loss of marital relations and won $750,000.

At the time Pacman pleaded no contest to conspiracy to commit disorderly conduct, receiving just a year's probation and 200 hours of community service.

He was suspended for the entire 2007 NFL season and part of 2008 as a result, and is currently a member of the Cincinnati Bengals ... at least for now.

Tony Parker of the NBA's San Antonio Spurs was apparently collateral damage in the wild fight between Chris Brown, Drake and their entourages Wednesday.

Eva Longoria's ex suffered a serious eye injury!

Parker was inside club W.i.P in NYC Wednesday when bottles and fists began to fly in a Chris Brown-Drake fight that began as a war of words, but got physical, and ugly.

So ugly, Parker's career was close to being jeopardized.

Tony Parker Watch

Parker addressed the media and said he got shards of glass in his eye during the melee. He will recover, but it was VERY close to being VERY bad.

"I was there with a bunch of friends when a fight broke out," the All-Star point guard recalled. "They started to throw bottles about. I got it all."

"My cornea has been touched. I can't do anything for seven days. But I was lucky. The injury won't prevent me from competing the Olympics."

We're glad to hear that and wish the Frenchman a speedy recovery. As for the main instigator? It looks like a gang-sign flashing posse member.

The Phillie Phanatic might be the most beloved mascot in all of sports. The guy is really just about having fun.

But try telling that to Suzanne Peirce. This Abington, Pennsylvania native is suing the fuzzy green monster (below, left) for injuries she suffered in 2010 when the Phanatic picked up Peirce's lounge chair and tossed her into a pool.

Phillie Phanatic and Phriends

The incident took place at The Golden Inn, a hotel in Avalon, New Jersey, and the lawsuit alleges "severe and permanent injuries" to the victim as a result of the Phanatic's "various antics."

A spokesperson for the Phillies says the team stands by its representative, believing the Phanatic did not engage in any wrongful activity.

The same, however, cannot be said for the Philadelphia offense, whose woeful production is largely response for the team's last-place standing in the National League East.

The Jerry Sandusky trial is in recess for a three-day weekend after the ninth alleged victim of the former Penn State coach took the stand Thursday.

Victim No. 9, a slightly built 18-year-old, looking nervous and ashamed, leaned into the witness stand mic yesterday to deliver graphic testimony.

He was a trailer-park kid from a poor, single-parent family, just the kind of project Jerry Sandusky's Second Mile charity was supposed to help.

Victim No. 9 told the shocked, packed Centre County Courtroom how when he was a young teen he'd stay in Sandusky's basement on weekends.

That's when the former Penn State defensive coordinator would routinely come down at night and force him to perform oral sex, he testified.

"What was I going to do?" the witness said, his vulnerable voice cracking. "Look at him, he's a big guy, bigger than me. Way bigger than me."

The boy said that he only kept returning to Sandusky's home because his mother, thinking he needed a male role model, insisted he do so.

Soon the sessions occasionally included sodomy, which couldn't stop either.

"I just went with it," he said. "There was no fighting against it. … Sometimes [I'd] scream. Sometimes tell him to get off of me. But other than that, he was there, you were in a basement, no one can hear you down there."

Finally, Floyd Mayweather has suffered a defeat. By technical knockout, if you ask us.

Following a positively ridiculous petition from the athlete's lawyer - stating Mayweather should be released early from his 87-day prison term because he's wasting away and his career is at risk - a Nevada judge has responded and basically told the star boxer:

Cry me a frickin river.

Floyd Mayweather Trains

Denying Mayweather's request, the judge said in court yesterday that the athlete's supposedly withering physical state is "self-induced, as water is made available twenty-four hours a day."

He also called BS on the gripe that Mayweather's diet consists of just a few hundred calories/day, adding that "[Floyd] chooses not to eat the food provided" and concluding:

"While the training areas and times provided to Floyd may not be consistent with his prior regimen, he is indeed provided sufficient space and time for physical activity if he so chooses."

Here's a crazy suggestion, Floyd Mayweather: the next time you're worried about your training suffering behind bars, do not beat your baby mama.
