Charlie Brown Voice Actor Arrested In California

SAN DIEGO (January 23, 2013)—Peter Robbins, 56, the voice actor who portrayed Charlie Brown in many animated "Peanuts" shows, has been arrested on charges that include stalking, authorities said.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima said Robbins was arrested Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry after a background check revealed an outstanding warrant naming Robbins from the San Diego County sheriff's department.

A sheriff's spokeswoman said she did not have details about the warrant.

Robbins was set to be arraigned Wednesday on counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and of stalking.

His manager declined to comment.

Robbins provided the voice of Charlie Brown for TV specials, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown."
