Former professional skateboarder and punk rock singer Duane Peters was sentenced Wednesday to five years' probation after pleading guilty to a domestic violence charge. Peters, 52, known as "The Master of Disaster," was charged in February with assaulting his girlfriend at their Long Beach home, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said. 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.
