Barry Bonds' son arrested after assaulting mother

Dec 8, 2009, 12:59 AM EDT

19-year-old Nikolai Bonds was arrested Saturday for allegedly spitting in his mother’s face and throwing a metal doorknob at her during an argument, police told the Associated Press
Police arrested Bonds on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, assault and battery, vandalism, false imprisonment and obstructing and resisting an officer.
According to Menlo Park police spokeswoman Nicole Acker, Bonds threw a metal doorknob at his mother “so hard that it embedded itself into the wall, but it missed her.” Sun Bonds, who was divorced from Barry in 1994, was uninjured.
Nikolai Bonds was often seen in the Giants dugout while his father was with the team. He played baseball briefly in high school and was a teammate of Matt Scioscia, the son of Angels manager Mike Scioscia, but he wasn’t considered a prospect.

    This instantly reminds me of Jesse Barfield getting pushed down by the stairs and being hospitalized by his then 18 yr old son…now in the A’s minor league system.

    America’s favorite drug-enhanced asshole appears to have gifted his rotten attitude to posteriority in the form of his offspring. If Sun has half a brain in her head, she’ll go to court and petition to expand her ex-husband’s visiting rights to a mandatory 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and then go out with Tiger Woods.

    He need to be put in jail for 1 year min. You put hands on my mother…it would be the last time you use it. When do children start beating on their mother…if this son beat on his mom, who else would he not beat. An example need to be set. He need to be put in jail for 1 full year.

    Steroid use does not skip a generation but is persistent familial and culturally. Good luck to mother Bonds in her attempts at gaining restraining orders against Barry and Nikolai.

    so…taylor mattingly shoves his mother and spits in her face, and nikolai bonds spits in his mother’s face and tries to cause her serious injury (embedded in the wall? that’s a fair amount of force.) What are these men teaching their sons?

    all you folks want to jump on bonds because he was surly with the press and usually kicked the s**t out of your local teams. i’d piss on the press if they were hounding me every day with negative questions. now steriods may make you stronger but i haven’t heard anything about it improving your eye sight. now you bottom feeders can go back to your nancy grace, E-Hollywood and ESPN gossip.
