Real Housewives of Orange County alumna Lauri Peterson’s son, Josh Waring, pleaded not guilty to 12 charges in his attempted murder case during a pretrial hearing Friday, August 19.
According to court records obtained by Us Weekly, Waring was charged with three counts of attempted murder, two for assault with a firearm and one count each for discharging a firearm at an inhabited dwelling, assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm, unlawful taking of a vehicle, evading a peace officer/reckless driving, hit-and-run with property damage, resisting a public or peace officer, and battery.
The troubled former reality personality was arrested for suspicion of attempted murder this past June. As previously reported by Us, Waring allegedly shot a 35-year-old man named Daniel Lopez in the torso in Costa Mesa, California, and then engaged in a car chase with local police.
He was arrested after he crashed the stolen vehicle and was charged with three counts of personal use of a firearm and one count of inflicting great bodily injury.
His current bail is set at $1 million according to Radar Online. Waring previously denied shooting the man during an interview from jail with the site.
“I had a prior altercation that night,” Waring told Radar Online. “I was using. I was under the influence, and was chased off the property. It was a mistake of bad timing. Someone came back and shot up the house. Just because of the fact I had priors, I was arrested.”
Waring pleaded guilty to a hit-and-run and three felony counts of possession of a controlled substance in 2008. During season 3 of the hit Bravo show, Peterson sought treatment at a rehab facility.
