Gumbumper.com has learned, a criminal charge dangling over Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife since 2012 was just dismissed by a judge in Chicago.
The charge of resisting arrest, punishable with up to one year in jail, was cleared during a short trial in a Cook County courtroom.
And ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches’ lawyer stopped just short of claiming that Wade, whose production in the latest NBA Finals was below average, orchestrated the well-publicized arrest to embarrass Funches as the two continue to battle over visitation of their two sons and their divorce settlement.
“This was a silly charge in the first place,” said Jon Erikcson, Funches’ attorney. “This was the most ridiculous arrest I’d seen in my 25 years as a criminal defense attorney.”
Originally, Funches faced a child abduction rap when she was nabbed by Cook County Sheriff’s deputies at her Chicago home June 16, 2012.
