Lauri Peterson’s Son Josh Waring Suffers Horrific Wounds In Jail Attack — See Shocking Photos Of Injuries Here!

Josh Waring, the son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson was viciously assaulted by a fellow inmate in an Orange County, California jail on October 9. Waring received 20 staples in his chest, and multiple stitches on his face.

“It kills me to see this!” Peterson told Radar Online, insisting the jail’s staff should have protected her son from the attack.

“The guards have a duty to serve and protect…A dead man can’t talk! A dead man can’t pursue his civil action against the county!”

He remains at the Theo Lacy Facility, a maximum-security jail in Orange, where his mother claims he has suffered multiple attacks over the years.

A desperate attempt to dismiss the case was denied in March 2019, despite an O.C. Sheriff’s Office manager’s admission authorities accessed Waring’s private calls while behind bars.

He will return to court on October 18 in his years-long fight for freedom.

Peterson told the outlet that she believes her son’s being targeted behind bars because his case unearthed claims law enforcement accessed inmates’ phone calls.

Waring said an inmate jumped and assaulted him with a makeshift weapon made of a pencil and blades.

“I was fighting for my life … I was screaming,” Waring told Radar Online via a phone call as his voice cracked. “As he’s punching me, the blade sliced up my face and chest.”

Waring has admitted to struggling with addiction, but insisted he never tried to kill anyone.

“If I do die in here, I just want people to know I am innocent of the shooting,” Waring said.

Meanwhile, reps for the O.C. Sheriff’s Department and Central Jail released a statement about the incident: “Yesterday at approximately 6pm, there was an assault that occurred at the Intake Release Center between two male inmates. Both inmates were treated by medical staff at the jail for injuries sustained during the assault. A criminal investigation against the suspect has begun, along with an internal administrative investigation.”

Waring has been behind bars since 2016. As previously reported, Waring was charged with attempted murder after allegedly opening fire on two people in Costa Mesa and then leading cops on a wild car chase on June 20, 2016. Waring was eventually captured and charged with three counts of attempted murder and several other felony and misdemeanor charges.

Waring and Peterson insist he’s innocent of the charges. His bail is set for more than $1 million.
