Peterson is currently charged with several parole violations stemming from his arrest in 2021. At that time, Peterson was arrested for driving under the influence with a child under the age of 15. Peterson crashed the vehicle he was driving with that child, described as a toddler, in the vehicle. Peterson attempted to hide the fact that the child was with him when he crashed. The child’s mother was apparently complicit in that attempted deception.

In addition to the felony DUI charge, Peterson was charged with a felony tampering physical evidence charge.
