Voice Actor For Charlie Brown Arrested In California
SAN DIEGO (CBS SF/AP) – Authorities in San Diego say the voice actor who portrayed Charlie Brown in many “Peanuts” shows was arrested on charges that include stalking.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima said Peter Robbins was arrested Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. A background check yielded a warrant against Robbins from the San Diego County sheriff’s department.
A sheriff’s spokeswoman said she did not have details about the warrant.
The 56-year-old is set to be arraigned Wednesday on counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and of stalking. His manager has declined to comment.
Robbins was the voice of Charlie Brown for TV specials, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”
