    The 20-year-old son of former San Francisco Giants slugger Barry Bonds has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism and assault charges stemming from a fight with his mother.

    Nikolai Bonds entered the plea Thursday as part of a deal with San Mateo County prosecutors that saw three additional misdemeanor charges dropped.

    Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Bonds was sentenced to four days in jail, but given credit for time served. He will also have to pay more than $2,000 in fines, undergo 32 hours of anger management counseling and be on probation for two years.

    By making the plea deal, Nikolai Bonds avoided up to two years of jailtime.

    Authorities say Bonds threw a doorknob at his mother, Sun Bonds, spit in her face and stopped her from leaving through the front door of her Menlo Park home on Dec. 5 after she suggested his friends may have taken jewelry.

    Wagstaffe says Sun Bonds refused to cooperate during the investigation.
