The son of a former star of one of Bravo's Real Housewives series has been arrested for allegedly shooting a man in a California sober living home.

Police say Joshua Waring, the son of ex-Real Housewives of Orange County star Lauri Peterson, was arrested Monday on suspicion of attempted murder.

Costa Mesa police allege Waring, 27, shot 35-year-old Daniel Lopez after an early morning argument.

Lopez was transported to a Santa Ana hospital by ambulance. He's expected to survive, CBS Los Angeles reports.

"Apparently there had been a previous confrontation between [Waring] and the occupants of that residence earlier, and he had returned," said Costa Mesa police Lt. Paul Beckman.

Waring is accused of fleeing the scene in a stolen BMW sport utility vehicle before authorities arrived.

Hours later, police say an Orange County Sheriff's Department helicopter crew spotted the SUV in Santa Ana.

A pursuit ensued before police say Waring crashed the vehicle and fled on foot.

"After a brief standoff, he surrendered without further incident to the Santa Ana police," Costa Mesa police said.

He was booked into Orange County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder, vehicle theft, felony evading police, hit-and-run and assault and battery.

Bail was set at $1 million.

Lauri Peterson has discussed her son's struggles with addiction in the past and Waring even appeared on the Bravo seriees while his mother was a member of the cast from 2006 to 2008.

Peterson and her husband became the legal guardian of Waring's daughter in 2012, Bravo reported last year.
