Lauri Peterson's Son Josh Waring Slapped With Four New Charges In Attempted Murder Case!

Nearly two months after his arrest Joshua Waring, the son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson has been hit with four new charges in his ongoing attempted murder case.

On June 20, Waring was arrested after he allegedly shot a man in front of his home. Police told the Los Angeles Times that the disturbed defendant shot 35-year-old Daniel Lopez in the upper torso at around 2:30 a.m. Waring was facing three counts of attempted murder, three counts of personal use of a firearm, and one count of inflicting great bodily injury, and pleaded not guilty to all three.

But according to court documents obtained by Radar Online, a hearing took place on August 19 and the DA hit Waring with more new charges: battery, hit and run with property damage, evading police/reckless driving, resisting arrest and obstructing an officer, and unlawful taking of a vehicle. His bail is currently set at $1 million.

Radar Online spoke with Josh earlier this month and he insisted he was innocent of the charges.

When asked if he shot the man, he said, “No, absolutely not.”

“I had a prior altercation that night,” Josh insisted.

“I was using,” Josh said, admitting past consumption of heroin and Xanax. “I was under the influence, and was chased off the property.”

“It was a mistake of bad timing,” he insisted. “Someone came back and shot up the house. Just because of the fact I had priors, I was arrested.”

“I have four other cases on top of this,” he admitted. “One is a trafficking sales case, in which I face a max of 22 years and four months. And for the attempted murder, a 45-year max. I am facing time, which is scary.”

Josh said he is trying to remain positive. “I’m doing good. I’m all right.”
