Unfortunately we all know that Lauri Peterson’s son has a serious addiction. He has had issues with drugs and alcohol for a very long time and all of the issues have seemed to have snowballed.
Josh is currently being accused of attempted murder and most recently was charged with contraband while behind bars – a serious offense.
Reports are now emerging about new details in his trial and what allegedly happened that night.
Josh was charged with attempted murder for allegedly opening fire on two people in California. Making the story even more bizarre is that Josh is now acting as his own lawyer and even questioned witnesses. His mother was there for the preliminary hearing and was taking notes. I’m shocked that Josh is acting as his own lawyer – proving how bad his state of mind is at the moment.
A witness described the scene as “chaotic” and there was a flurry of gunfire. There were reportedly between 8-10 shots that night.
Waring was described as unsafe and was not welcome at the scene as he had waved a gun only a few days prior to the incident. After the incident, Waring took the police on a wild car chase and even tried to run away. After a brief standoff with the police he was then taken into custody.
He has been charged with three accounts of attempted murder. If found guilty he will face the possibility of life in prison.
Josh obviously has a very serious problem and it may be that prison is the best place for him to be in order to get sober. This is a very sad story; however unfortunately not an uncommon one regarding addiction.
