Josh Waring Insists He’s Innocent; Slapped With New Charges


Former RHOC star Lauri Peterson’s son Josh Waring was arrested in June of 2016 for attempted murder and was facing three counts of attempted murder, three counts of personal use of a firearm, and one count of inflicting great bodily injury.

But at a hearing on August 19th, the District Attorney slapped waring with new charges including; battery, hit and run with property damage, evading police/reckless driving, resisting arrest and obstructing an officer, and unlawful taking of a vehicle. His bail is set at $1 million.

RadarOnline spoke with Josh earlier this month and he insisted he was innocent of the charges.

When asked if she shot the man, he said, “No, absolutely not.”

“I had a prior altercation that night,” Josh insisted.

“I was using,” Josh said, admitting past consumption of heroin and Xanax. “I was under the influence, and was chased off the property.”

“It was a mistake of bad timing,” he insisted. “Someone came back and shot up the house. Just because of the fact I had priors, I was arrested.”

“I have four other cases on top of this,” he admitted. “One is a trafficking sales case, in which I face a max of 22 years and four months. And for the attempted murder, a 45-year max. I am facing time, which is scary.”

But he is trying to remain positive.

“I’m doing good. I’m all right.”
