Lauri Peterson Breaks Silence On Son Josh Waring’s Arrest; Claims He Was ‘Falsely Accused’ In Attempted Murder Charges!

Lauri Peterson took to Twitter on Thursday, March 22 to set the record straight about her son Josh Waring's arrest. "After keeping silent for nearly 2 years in regards to my sons arrest, I am going to begin laying out the facts of his case and how easily it is to be falsely accused," the Real Housewives of Orange County alum tweeted.

When a follower asked the former Housewife to "let us know the truth," the reality star replied "you will get facts only! I promise!"

"I will lay out the facts starting from the day of the arrest," she added. "I'll let you be the judge but it is going to take me time to organize and far to lengthy for one tweet."

According to E! News, Peterson also retweeted and shared an article titled "Cop-Protected Orange County Snitch Avoids Murder Beefs With Laughable Tales" from OC Weekly News. In the article, author R. Scott Moxley suggested a man by the name of Bryan Jason Goldstein was also at the crime scene but "managed to quickly win police exoneration." According to a January 2018 article by the L.A. Times, Waring's attorney Joel Garson alleged in court that Goldstein received "special treatment."

"If you read the story that I tweeted previously by Scott Moxley from @OCWeekly you will get an abbreviated summary," Peterson wrote. "He understands this case and although there were a couple of minor mistakes, he is the closest to the truth that I've seen so far. Much more to come."

However, Peterson suggested she would expand upon details about the case in a blog post. She also said she saw a "silver lining" in her son's "injustice." When a follower asked if her son was sober, she replied, "Yes! His sobriety is the silver lining in this injustice! It is what keeps me going!"

As previously reported, Waring was arrested in 2016 for allegedly shooting a man in Costa Mesa, Calif. and fleeing the scene in a stolen car. In addition to the attempted murder charge, he faced charges of battery, hit and run with property damage; resisting arrest and obstructing an officer; unlawful taking of a vehicle and, lastly, evading police and reckless driving, reports E! News.

Later that year, Waring was charged with possession of contraband while in prison after police said he "knowingly and unlawfully" had an alcoholic beverage in the men's maximum-security jail.
