Police spokesman Bill Goodin said Monday that Peters refused to show his driver's license after police stopped him Saturday night because of the volume of music coming from his vehicle.
The charge of resisting arrest was added because of Peters' refusal to show his license.
This is the second time in the last month that an Eagles player has had a run in with the law. Peters' arrest comes three weeks after teammate King Dunlap was arrested and charged with reckless driving in Tennessee.
Peters was a Pro Bowl selection this year, but did not play because of injuries.
