Charlie Brown voice actor arrested on stalking charges

SAN DIEGO — Officials say the voice actor who played Charlie Brown in many “Peanuts” cartoons was arrested in California on Sunday on charges that include stalking.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima told U-T San Diego Peter Robbins was arrested Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.

Robbins, 56, who was the voice of Charlie Brown for TV specials including “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” is set to be arraigned Wednesday on counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and of stalking.

Cima said a background check yielded a warrant against Robbins from the San Diego County sheriff’s department.

His manager has declined to comment.
