Peter Robbins, the voice behind Charlie Brown, is currently in San Diego County Jail, charged with 12 counts of creating criminal threats and stalking.
CNN reported that he was arrested in San Diego's San Ysidro, leaving Mexico and reentering the United States late Sunday.
He was driving alone back to the country when the computer checked his passport, and confirmed Robbins has a felony warrant in San Diego, according to custom spokesman Ralph DeSio.
The 56-year-old former actor pleaded not guilty last Wednesday in San Diego County Superior Court to two counts of stalking and ten counts of making criminal threats.
Robbins reportedly called his ex-girlfriend 37 times in 24 hours, and threatened the woman that he would kill her and her son if she refused to return the car and the dog, Associated Press reported.
Further, he threatened his La Jolla plastic surgeon, demanding her to refund his money. Robbins made numerous phone calls repeatedly and she moved to a hotel temporarily, and had to hire an armed guard outside her clinic.
Prosecutors stated that Robbins had been practicing in a shooting range lately, purchased a firearm, but had not picked it up yet.
Judge David Szumowski ordered to increase his bail to $550,000 and ordered him not to have any form of contact with the two people involved in the case, and not to posses a firearm.
Robbins was nine when he was first hired to voice Charlie Brown in the animated A Boy Named Charlie Brown, and was thirteen when he was replaced.
He said in an interview back in 2008 that he got replaced by another actor, after his voice changed at thirteen years old.
Robbins stopped acting in 1972, and changed careers to become a real estate agent.
He now lives in Oceanside, CA with his dog named Snoopy.
