The news for Josh Waring just got incredibly more dim. 

Earlier this week, The Real Housewives of Orange County star was arrested for attempted murder. 

And while that’s a hefty charge, it’s not like anyone didn’t see this coming. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Orange County online, you probably already knew that he’s a troubled young man. 

He shot at a man and then fled the scene in his vehicle. 

The thing that made it all the more shocking was that he didn’t drive away in his own car. 

Instead, he opted for a stolen BMW SUV. He then proceeded to cause a traffic accident and closed off the chase by attempting to run off on foot. 

He was not giving in. 

Now, new details have emerged about the charges that Lauri Peterson’s son is facing. 

Waring appeared in the Costa Mesa Jail courtroom yesterday morning. 

According to an Orange County Superior Court public information officer, Waring did NOT state a plea. 

Lauri’s worst nightmares are totally coming true about her son. 

He was slapped with three counts of attempted murder, three counts personal use of a firearm and once count of inflicting great bodily injury. 

There’s also word that there was a previous disturbance between Waring and his victim, Daniel Lopez. 

“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. 

“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.”

We wish Daniel a speedy recovery!
