LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) —Professional skateboarder and punk rocker Duane Peters was facing possible felony domestic violence charges after being arrested in Long Beach Saturday.

Dubbed “The Master of Disaster,” Peters, 52, was arrested in the 4000 block of Third Street, said Long Beach police Sgt. Megan Zabel.

He was being held at the Long Beach jail in lieu of $50,000 bail, according to sheriff’s online booking records.
