Barry Bonds’ son: what would you do?

Posted by Marcia on June 18, 2010

I previously wrote about Barry Bonds’ son, Nikolai. Today’s news reports noted that this 20-year-old pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of vandalism and battery stemming from an altercation with his mother.

December 5, his mother, Sun Bonds, asked him about jewelry that was missing from their home. Nikolai then followed her into a bedroom, threw furniture around, allegedly threw a doorknob at her, and prevented her from leaving the house. He also spit in her face, and this is battery.

Sun Bonds refused to cooperate in the case against her son, and this contributed to the decision to reach a plea deal.

Nikolai Bonds will get credit for several days spent in county jail and will serve no additional time, and he must pay a $2,130 fine and undergo 32 hours of anger management training.

In exchange for Bonds’ plea deal, prosecutors dismissed misdemeanor charges of false imprisonment, threatening a police officer and obstructing a police officer.

It’s one of many different incidents in the lives of these family members. If you were in Sun Bonds’ position, would you have filed charges or would you have refused to cooperate as she did? Why?

    That question cannot be answered without knowledge of what life behind closed doors in the Bond household was like.
