Jail isn't stopping Lauri Peterson's son from getting into even more trouble. The Real Housewives of Orange County star's son Josh Waring has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance while behind bars.

Waring, who is currently in jail awaiting trial for his attempted murder case, was charged on November 3rd, 2016. If convicted for the felony charge, he could be sentenced to more years behind bars.

The former reality star has been in Orange County Jail since June 20 when he was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in a shooting in Costa Mesa. He has been accused of shooting Daniel Lopez, 35, in the lower torso around the victim's home.

Reports claim Waring was involved in a confrontation earlier in the day with one of the residents. He allegedly returned later and shot Lopez, who was hospitalized for the injuries.

Waring reportedly fled and stole a BMW SUV before police arrived to the scene of the crime.

Waring was busted when a helicopter spotted the stolen vehicle. He was involved in a car chase with police when he refused to pull over. After a short standoff with police, he surrendered.

Although the gun was not found in the car, police found evidence in the stolen vehicle connecting him to the shooting.

He was booked in Orange County Jail on three counts of suspicion of attempted murder, assault and battery, felony evading police, vehicle theft, and hit-and-run.

The criminal complaint revealed Waring will face a harsher sentencing for personal use of a firearm and inflicting great bodily injury.

His bail was set at $1 million dollars. In July, Waring pled not guilty to the three counts of attempted murder.

Last month, Lopez filed a civil lawsuit against Waring.

He says Waring came to the sober living facility on June 19th, 2016 to drop off a cell phone that belonged to one of the people living in the home.

Waring returned around 2:30 am and began making noise outside the home by honking his horn. When members of the facility told him to leave, he sped off, made a U-turn and drove back shooting and striking Lopez.

The lawsuit claims Waring lived at the facility previously and had been involved in numerous incidents of violence, drug use and failure to follow the rules.

Lopez claimed the incident forced him to suffer hospital and medical expenses, wage loss, loss of earning capacity and general damages. He is seeking unspecified damages.

Waring will now have to explain the new charges to the judge when he appears in court at the end of the month.
