Bonds Testifies In Court

Sun., Dec. 17, 1995

San Francisco outfielder Barry Bonds testified during divorce proceedings that he never physically abused his wife but once kicked her after she kicked him.

Bonds also said the two had a scuffle over car keys while visiting his in-laws in Sweden.

In court Friday, Bonds said his wife of six years had fierce temper tantrums that included breaking some of his trophies, smashing holes in the walls and doors, damaging cars and nearly getting into a fist fight with her mother.

Sun Bonds has testified that after marrying him in 1988, Bonds controlled her life and wouldn’t allow her to pursue a career. She also claimed he dragged her around their home by her hair, pushed her down the stairs, choked and threatened her. Bonds has denied those allegations.
