    Shows are ignorant you are Judy F. Here’s what really happened:
    “According to the woman, the ex-boyfriend entered her apartment at approximately 1:30 a.m. to find her and Bonilla in bed. The ex-boyfriend became upset and struck Bonilla in the head with a baseball bat. But rather than submitting, Bonilla took the bat away from the ex-boyfriend and began beating him about the head, legs and arms.”

    He was in bed sleeping, that’s self defense. Why wasn’t the EX BF charged with home invasion? I heard it from Mr Bonilla, and his side is supported by other articles on the story.
