St. Petersburg police charge adult son in rampage against parents

ST. PETERSBURG — A son's violent rampage at his parents' Old Northeast home early Sunday sent his mother to the hospital and him to jail, officers said.

Nicolas Bogdal, 22, shoved his mother, Paula, to the floor and held her down during an argument around 1 a.m., an arrest report states. He struck his father, Phillip, with a skateboard and punched him so hard he may have broken his hand.

Bogdal, whose attacks were witnessed by his sister, flung wine bottles and picture frames at his parents before they were able to pin him, an officer wrote. Bogdal slurred his speech, reeked of alcohol and appeared "extremely intoxicated."

The officer found their 13th Avenue bungalow in shambles. Flowers, broken chairs and shattered glass littered the floor. "There was blood all over the living room and dining room," an officer wrote.

Bogdal was charged with domestic aggravated battery and taken to the Pinellas County Jail.
