“On Oct. 12, he was seen briefly as the sports segment began and then cameras quickly cut away,” reports Arkansas Business. “Viewers cited by the Arkansas TV News Watch website described Peters as seeming to have been intoxicated.”
Peters said he takes full responsibility for what happened. “Each mistake comes with a cost,” said Peters. “We all know that. It’s just that this particular mistake comes with a big cost and I’m going to have to accept that.”
He’s worked at the two stations since 2005.
