Joshua Waring, Son of Lauri Peterson, Suspected of Attempted Murder


USWeekly.com:
Joshua Waring, the son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson, has been arrested for suspicion of attempted murder, Us Weekly can confirm. 

Waring, 27, shot a 35-year-old man in the torso around 2:30 a.m. in Costa Mesa, California, on Monday, June 20.

"Apparently there had been a previous confrontation between [Waring] and the occupants of that residence earlier, and he had returned," Costa Mesa police lieutenant Paul Beckman said in a statement via the Los Angeles Times.

Waring wasn't handcuffed until several hours later, after a car chase with police. He crashed while driving a stolen SUV and tried to run away before authorities booked him. According to a Costa Mesa police press release, Waring was initially spotted by an Orange County Sheriff's helicopter and "surrendered" at the scene. The gun used hasn't been found yet. 

The unidentified victim, meanwhile, was taken to Orange County Global Medical Center and is expected to survive, according to Costa Mesa Fire Department.
