Authorities say the son of home run king Barry Bonds was arrested over the weekend after an argument with his mother.

Menlo Park police say 19-year-old Nikolai Bonds was booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism and other crimes at the home of his mother, Sun Bonds, around 10 a.m. Saturday.

Police spokeswoman Nicole Acker says Nikolai Bonds was taken into custody after allegedly throwing a door knob at his 45-year-old mother. The younger Bonds is accused of causing about $400 worth of damage during the argument.

He was released Saturday night after posting $50,000 bail. It was not known if he had retained an attorney.

Sun and Barry Bonds were divorced in 1994.
