By Daniel S Levine,

Peter Robbins, who is best known as the voice of Charlie Brown in several classic Peanuts TV specials, was arrested on five felony counts in San Diego Sunday.

According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, the 56-year-old’s charges include four for making threats to cause death or great bodily injury and one count of stalking. The San Diego County Jail website notes that he was held on $550,000 bail and is set to be in court today.

His manager, Danielle Matthews, said that she would give a statement later Wednesday.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima told the Union-Tribune that he was arrested at 8 p.m. Sunday night. He was booked in jail on Monday at 4 a.m. A border officer found that there was a warrant out for his arrest on charges of crimes against a person. He was alone in his 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230 when he tried to cross the border into Mexico.

A spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department gave no further details on the warrant Tuesday.

According to NBC News, Robbins said that he was just 9-years-old when he was cast as Charlie Brown, although by the time he reached 14, he no longer voiced the character. His voice can be heard in A Charlie Brown Christmas, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and A Boy Named Charlie Brown.
