Josh Waring, son of former Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson, was scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday for an attempted murder charge, but the hearing was rescheduled and now Waring is facing multiple charges!

Waring appeared in the Costa Mesa Jail courtroom at 10 a.m. Thursday morning but did not plea, an Orange County Superior Court public information officer told RadarOnline. The court will not reveal why the court date was moved to July 15th, 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 we 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 Waring shot 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.

Neighbors were stunned by the 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.”
