Joshua Waring, son of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lauri Peterson, was scheduled to be arraigned today on attempted murder charges after his shocking arrest on Monday, RadarOnline.com can reveal. But now, he's not just facing that one charge!
Waring appeared in the Costa Mesa Jail courtroom at 10 a.m. this morning but did not plea, an Orange County Superior Court public information officer told Radar.
While the court will not reveal why the court date was moved to July 15, it has officially announced Waring's charges: three counts of attempted murder, three counts personal use of a firearm and one count of inflicting great bodily injury.
Initially the hearing was supposed to take place Wednesday, but the court postponed the arraignment after Waring refused to leave his cell.
As Radar previously reported, Waring was arrested on Monday after allegedly shooting a man in front of his Costa Mesa, California home.
Police told the Los Angeles Times that the troubled defendant shot 35-year-old Daniel Lopez in the upper torso at around 2:30 a.m. Lopez is currently in the hospital and is expected to recover.
"Apparently there had been a previous confrontation between Waring and the occupants of that residence earlier, and he had returned," Costa Mesa police Lt. Paul Beckman said.
As Radar exclusively reported, neighbors were stunned by the disturbing incident.
"At about 1:30 a.m. my husband was still awake and heard people out in the street screaming and cussing," a woman who lives across the street from the sober living facility The Way Home said of the dangerous altercation. "He came back in and just said he wasn't going to deal with this."
