This came through as a personal injury question. But, you are asking about the criminal process. So, as to charges, your son needs to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to aggressively deal with those charges. Because this is a freely accessible web site no further details should be posted here and I advise against posting any more facts about this anywhere.
That he "got into an altercation with a bouncer" is a fairly general summary that could mean many things. Who faces exposure, how much and for what in the criminal or civil context depends entirely on the details which I again urge you not to post.
