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.
