You're charged with a crime and potentially can be fined or jailed and face other consequences. You need a lawyer.
You/your parents should retain a lawyer immediately.

Fight it in court or pay the bond? First, there is no bond to pay, because you were never arrested. If you pay anything in court it will be the fine, which means you will have a conviction on your record. Because you seem confused about even the process, I would suggest that you retain an attorney.
