SANTA ANA ( — The son of former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Lauri Peterson is being held in the attempted murder of a man at a sober living home in Costa Mesa.

Joshua Waring, 27, was arrested Monday.

Police said Waring shot Daniel Lopez, 35, after an argument.

According to Costa Mesa police, Waring fled the shooting scene in a stolen SUV, and later led officers on a chase. The pursuit ended in Santa Ana, where police say Waring was arrested after a standoff at a construction supply warehouse.

The charges against Waring include suspicion of attempted murder, vehicle theft, felony evading police and hit and run.

His bail was set at $1 million.

Some neighbors say there’s been trouble at the sober living house where the shooting happened many times before.

“They’re fighting all the time, every single day.” said neighbor Kite Huynh. “I think the city needs to shut this down.”

Waring has a history of arrests for offenses including drug possession with intent to sell.

His mother was part of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” cast from 2006 to 2008. Waring and his troubles were part of some episodes.
