REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) - San Mateo County prosecutors have charged Barry Bonds' son with five misdemeanors after he allegedly threw a doorknob at his mother.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Thursday that 20-year-old Nikolai Bonds faces charges of battery, false imprisonment, vandalism, making threats to an officer and obstructing an officer.
Menlo Park police say Bonds threw the doorknob at his mother, Sun Bonds, and spit in her face during a Dec. 5 confrontation. Officers also said Bonds blocked his mother from leaving and destroyed property worth $400.
The 45-year-old Sun Bonds, the home run king's ex-wife, wasn't injured.
Wagstaffe said Bonds could face up to two years in jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 12.
