First Elmo had a scandal, now it’s Charlie Brown?
The man who voiced the beloved character of Charlie Brown in various episodes of Peanuts has been arrested on a few charges, one of them being stalking.
Peter Robbins, 56, was arrested on Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima.
De Cima told UT San Diego that Robbins was arrested on five felony charges. He was booked into jail at 4 a.m. on Monday, where he was held on $550,000 bail.
Robbins will appear in a San Diego court on Wednesday, where he is expected to be arraigned on those charges. His manager, Danielle Matthews, wouldn’t comment on the arrest.
When Robbins’ silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz was examined by a border officer on Sunday night, it was determined he was wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department for a felony warrant. He had been arrested on counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and of stalking, The AP reports.
Matthews said she would comment on the ordeal after the arraignment.
Robbins voiced Charlie Brown in specials such as A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
