The Real Housewives of Orange County - RHOC

More Issues for Lauri Peterson’s Son Josh: Accused of Smuggling Meth & Heroin In Prison!

Things seem to be going from bad to worse to rock bottom for former RHOC star Lauri Peterson’s son Josh Waring.

We have covered Josh’s struggle with substance abuse, attempted murder charges and subsequent arrest. Unfortunately, for Lauri and her family, this was not his rock bottom as he continues to have issues behind bars.

Radar is reporting that Josh “is under fire for numerous dangerous and serious behavioral problems, including slashing one inmate with a modified razor in August and another inmate in December.”

Yikes! It doesn’t stop there as “Waring, 28, has been caught with porn, prescription drugs and “pruno,” or jail wine.”

And folks it gets worse as pruno isn’t his worst offense behind bars as Orange County Sheriff’s investigator Donald Lee, says “Waring’s girlfriend, Hayley Pintek, was caught trying to smuggle heroin into the jail for Waring.”

If you thought that was the most bizarre part of this tragedy, Waring is also representing himself. I have no idea how Lauri is letting this happen as her son is clearly in no mindset to be doing this.

Josh has caused serious issues behind bars as it is reported that “Waring has been disciplined at least 20 times for misconduct inside the Orange County jail and has been punished in various ways, including losing television privileges to a month in solitary confinement.”

Waring is scheduled to appear in court next on June 26.

Addiction is devastating and my heart breaks for everyone involved. Luckily, Lauri and George Peterson have taken custody of Josh and Hannah’s daughter as clearly neither are in a place to provide a stable environment for her.

There is no doubt that addiction makes people do things they never thought they would do and it’s clear that Josh is severely troubled. We will be following this story so stay tuned to AllAboutTRH for updates.
