It’s a disappointing news day for fans of the popular Peanuts animated movies based on the comic strip.
Peter Robbins, best known as the original voice of Charlie Brown, was arrested late Sunday on five felony counts.
Robbins was arrested in San Diego for one felony count of stalking and making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury. He’s currently being held on a bail amount of $550,000.
Angelica de Cima, spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says Robbins was pulled over at the San Ysidro Port of Entry in a silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230. He was alone in the car when a border patrolman stopped him and did a background check. A felony warrant for his arrest popped up in the system and he was booked into the San Diego County jail at 4am Monday morning.
Neither the sheriff’s department nor Robbins spokeswomen would comment on the case.
Robbins, 56, is a long-time child actor. He began voice work for the Peanuts productions when he was just 9-years- old, starring in A Boy Named Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
He also appeared in the popular television shows The Munster, Get Smart, and F Troop in addition to several movies.
