Peterson attended Brentwood Christian Academy and has resided in Bessemer, Pleasant Grove and Hueytown. He was arrested on robbery and kidnapping charges in 2012, but the charges were later dismissed. In May 2013 Peterson was arrested and charged with the murder of Arthur Green III on Rayfield Drive in Birmingham. A month after Green's death, Peterson was named by Jimmy Bernard Hannah as one of two men who shot him on Carolina Terrace in Bessemer. Hannah later died from his wounds.
Peterson was acquitted at trial in February 2015 for Hannah's murder. The other named defendant, Ronald Ross, pleaded guilty to manslaughter. A year later, Peterson stood trial for Green's murder. A key witness failed to appear, and Peterson was offered a plea deal. He was sentenced to serve a 20-year split sentence with a minimum of three years in prison. With credit for time served before trial, Peterson was never transferred to the state prison system.
In January 2017 Peterson was charged with possession of methamphetamine, heroin and Xanax. In September of the same year he was arrested again for possession of cocaine. In October 2017 Peterson's probation was revoked. While back in custody, he was also charged with the murder of Maurice Morris on October 15 at the Onyx Lounge in Graymont.
