Lauri Waring Peterson’s son, Josh Waring, seems to be back to his troubled ways.

The son of the Real Housewives of Orange County star was recently charged with felony grand theft auto, TMZ reports. Sadly, stealing a car is only one item on a laundry list of offenses for which Josh is facing possible jail time.

The troubled 24-year-old was charged yesterday, October 17, with stealing a 2005 Cadillac, possessing an opium pipe and needles, and attempting to destroy evidence.

Josh’s wife, with whom he has a child, was also arrested for the possession of a billy club, which is illegal in the state of California.

Josh’s newest woes aren’t his first encounters with the police. Lauri’s son has had problems with drugs in the past and spent Season 2 of the Real Housewives of Orange Country bickering his mom about house rules following a stint in rehab. In the Season 3 finale, Lauri and Josh made nice during a dramatic psychotherapy and all seemed to be okay with the mother-son duo when Lauri appeared on the show again for Season 8.

We’re sending our thoughts to Lauri and her family during this disconcerting time.
