Page Six: The Hollywood powerhouse behind “Superman Returns,” “Batman” and “Ali” is charged with multiple violations of his parole stemming from a drunk-driving plea. The Ventura County district attorney’s office tells Page Six Peters is due in court on Jan. 16 to answer charges he failed to complete an alcohol-education program, or report to his probation officer, or complete community service.

What’s more, a source says a document submitted by the four-times-divorced filmmaker is being examined for alleged forgery, as it shows he did a required 40 hours of community service – when he had really finished only four hours.

Peters pleaded no contest to DUI after dozing off on the 101 Freeway in Ventura on Feb. 11, 2006. He agreed to a sentence of three years probation and community service with Homeboy Industries, which helps ex-gang members go straight…

If Peters is found guilty of parole violation, he could be sent to jail.
