We propose the rule "254" cellular automaton model with a probabilistic global rule. The global rule regulates the proportion of total cell states. The model reproduces spatiotemporal patterns obtained by an experiment of peeling an adhesive tape. The statistical properties of the spatiotemporal patterns are characterized from the fractal point of view.
