The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

Mama to the Rescue: Lauri Peterson Claims Her Son Was ‘Falsely Accused’ in Arrest & Is Working on Organizing Facts!

Things went from bad to worse once Lauri Peterson left RHOC.

While we saw Lauri’s son Joshua Waring struggle with addiction, it wasn’t until Lauri left the housewives that things seem to hit rock bottom. In the spring of 2016, Waring was arrested as he allegedly shot a man in Costa Mesa then went on a crazy car chase with authorities. Waring was then charged with three counts of attempted murder, in addition to charges of assault with a firearm, evading police while driving recklessly and resisting an offer and battery. Needless to say it hasn’t been looking good for the former OC child; however his mother Lauri has been surprisingly silent on the whole mess – until now.

Peterson took to none other than Twitter to let out her frustrations, and it wasn’t about her so. Instead Lauri alleged that he has been falsely accused and she was working on organizing the facts:

“After keeping silent for nearly 2 years in regards to my sons arrest, I am going to begin laying out the facts of his case and how easily it is to be falsely accused!”

Lauri further added: “I will lay out the facts starting from the day of the arrest. I’ll let you be the judge but it is going to take me time to organize and far to lengthy for one tweet.”

Lauri then linked an article titled “Cop-Protected Orange County Snitch Avoids Murder Beef With Laughable Tales” suggesting her son is innocent and was framed by police.

Not stopping there, Lauri added:

“If you read the story that I tweeted previously by Scott Moxley from @OCWeekly you will get an abbreviated summary. He understands this case and although there were a couple of minor mistakes, he is the closest to the truth that I’ve seen so far. Much more to come.”

According to People: “The article says that a man by the name of Bryan Jason Goldstein was at the crime scene but “managed to quickly win police exoneration.”

It is further stated that Waring’s attorney alleged in court that Goldstein received “special treatment from officers” claiming that officers didn’t test Goldstein’s hands or clothing for gunshot residue and didn’t search the car until two days after the scene of the crime. It was also reported that Goldstein had an “immunity agreement” with the O.C. district attorney’s office to testify in a homicide case from 2016 and that he had been an informant in another case in 2004.”

Yikes…I don’t know enough about this case to make any statements; however I have a feeling we will be hearing more. All I can say is that Joshua’s charges are extremely serious and the accusations that Lauri is making are extremely serious as well. If there is any truth to it, I’m sure Lauri has hired the best lawyer in town to uncover the truth.

We’ll be following this story closely so stay turned for details.
