By Robert Kirchgassner,

A man who was once the voice of Charlie Brown was arrested Wednesday for allegedly threatening a plastic surgeon.

Peter Robbins, 56, reportedly threatened Dr. Lori Saltz for botching plastic surgery on his girlfriend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Saltz, who works in La Jolla, Calif., obtained a temporary restraining order against Robbins, Jan. 3. He was jailed 10 days later at a restaurant in La Jolla where Saltz was dining. He also reportedly threatened the arresting officer after handcuffs were put on him.

Robbins is now set for arraignment Wednesday in San Diego Superior Court, according to the Los Angeles Times. He faces one charge of stalking and four others of threatening death or bodily injury. He is currently being held on $550,000 bail.

Robbins became a child star by voicing Charlie Brown in several Peanuts animated specials, beginning with the first A Charlie Brown Christmas, which first aired in 1965.

He embraced his legacy as the main character of Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip by naming his dog Snoopy and with his Facebook page, where he answered questions from fans.
