Officers approached Bonds for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered he was a wanted fugitive from New Haven, Connecticut. The fully extraditable warrant issued for Failure to verify address as a Sex Offender, Assault in 3rd Degree and Assault & Battery on a Medical personnel was confirmed by Connecticut authorities. Bonds was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
