An Orange County native, Peters gained fame for helping pioneer radical skateboarding moves.
He has been credited as among the first skaters to do a 360-degree loop, called "the loop of death," and for inventing such tricks as "the Fake and Thruster" and "the Indy Air."
Peters embraced punk rock, and his skate-punk style had a strong influence on the skateboarding world.
In the early 1990s, Peters became the lead singer for the U.S. Bombs, a punk rock band. He continued to perform with other groups and skate.
As part of his sentencing, Peters was ordered to attend a domestic violence counseling program for one year and complete 60 days of community service, prosecutors said. He was also ordered to stay away from the victim for 10 years.
