    A Chicago judge ordered police to take basketball star Dwyane Wade's estranged wife into custody after she failed to appear for a court appearance on Monday.

    Cook County Circuit Court Judge Marya Nega issued a "body attachment," similar to an arrest warrant, to force Siohvaughn Wade into court.  Once there, she'lll be held on $10,000 bond or until the next court date at the end of the month, Nega ordered.

    Nega said the contentious divorce involving the Miami Heat guard and Siohvaughn Wade is "beginning to spiral out of control."

    "She has done everything you could ever imagine to frustrate his visitation, to interfere with it, to alienate the children -- excuse after excuse after excuse -- and those are no longer acceptable to this judge," said Dwyane Wade's attorney, Jim Pritikin, after the hearing.

    Last week Siohvaughn Wade filed a lawsuit against Wade's girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, alleging she was acting seductively in front of Wade's children. Her lawsuit claimed the affair was causing thier son to lose his hair.

    Wade was in court Monday morning and his lawyer James Pritikin planned to argue that Wade be given physical custody of the couple's two children.

    The hearing was put off until the afternoon to give Siohvaughn Wade time to get to court.
