Legal Question in Personal Injury in California

We provide support for our 24 year old son who is attending college. He lives in a condo we own (we don't live there) and we give him monthly money for his living expenses. If he does something stupid like punching and injuring his roommate (the roommate pays us rent but our son doesn't) or getting in a fight in a bar and hurting someone, are we in any way liable for his actions? Because we help support him, could we be successfully sued for his actions and lose our money? Note: we are not on his car title and he doesn't drive our cars.

No. Upon turning 18, your son is responsible for his own crimes.
