EXCLUSIVE: RHOC star Josh Waring – Fires Back at Man Accusing Him of Shooting Him Outside Sober Living Rehab
The Dirty can exclusively reveal Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson’s son Josh Waring is firing back at the man accusing him of shooting him outside an O.C. rehab.
Last year, Waring was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder over an incident that took place in Costa Mesa, CA. He was accused of shooting a 35-year-old man, Daniel Lopez, in the lower torso outside a sober living facility. Waring fled the scene in a stolen BMW but eventually surrendered to police. He has been locked up in Orange County with bail set at $1 million awaiting sentencing.
Then months later, Lopez sued Waring over the shooting along with the company who owned the rehab. He explained Waring showed up to the facility late at night honking his horn and members came out to tell him to stop. He sped off, made a U-turn and came back in front where he allegedly shot Lopez. He sued for damages for his medical expenses, loss of wages and loss of earning capacity.
Recently, Waring fired back at the lawsuit demanding it be thrown out of court. The reality star denies he caused any harm to Lopez and blames the man and other parties of being responsible for the incident … NOT him.
Waring has a long history of legal troubles … having been arrested for forgery, possession of drugs and paraphernalia … even catching a case for being found with drugs in jail.
