Producer Peters Violates Dui Parole
Hollywood producer JON PETERS is facing a possible prison stint after reportedly violating his parole stemming from a driving under the influence (DUI) charge in 2006.
The Superman Returns moviemaker has allegedly failed to complete an alcohol education programme, report to his probation officer or complete 40 hours of community service, as per the terms of his release.
According to New York gossip column Page Six, Peters has been ordered to Ventura County Court in California on 16 January (09) to answer to the violations. He could be sentenced to prison because he agreed to three years' probation when originally charged with DUI.
Peters, a former lover of Barbra Streisand, pleaded no contest to the DUI citing after he was found asleep by a freeway in February 2006. As well as the probation, he was ordered to complete community service with Homeboy Industries, an organisation which helps former gang members clean up their act after prison.
A source tells Page Six, "(A) proof of completion was submitted to the court. When the charity was asked to confirm Jon had completed 40 hours by the deadline, they confirmed he had only done four."
A spokesperson for Peters was unavailable for comment as WENN went to press.
