Video Footage Shows Lauri Peterson’s Son Josh Waring Slashed In Jailhouse Fight!

Video footage of Josh Waring, the son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson surfaced where he was brutally slashed in the face and chest.

Waring fought a shirtless and heavily tattooed attacker at the Orange County Jail in Santa Ana, on October 9, which the incident was captured in a prison surveillance video posted on Saturday via TMZ.

In the footage, Waring was on his way to his cell when he was jumped by the inmate who had razors wrapped in a towel. Waring suffered injuries to his face and chest, getting 20 stitches, TMZ reported.

The fight lasted for more than a minute, and moved off-camera, stopping only when guards rushed onto the scene, reports Page Six.

Waring’s attorney told TMZ that he was returning to his cell in the protective custody unit of the jail after making a phone call when he was attacked by another inmate. Waring’s lawyer, Joel Garson, said that the attack could be in retaliation against Waring for filing a federal lawsuit against Orange County and its Sheriff’s Department for violating his civil rights while he has been in jail.

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.
