Peter Robbins—Voice of Charlie Brown—Arrested on Suspicion of Stalking

Robbins was booked into San Diego Central Jail around 3:40 a.m. Monday and held in lieu of $550,000 bail.

OCEANSIDE, CA -- Oceanside resident Peter Robbins—the voice of Charlie Brown in several Peanuts films and television specials—was in custody in San Diego on suspicion of one count of felony stalking and four felony counts of making criminal threats.

Robbins was booked into San Diego Central Jail around 3:40 a.m. Monday and held in lieu of $550,000 bail, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department's website, which showed the 56-year-old could be arraigned as early as Wednesday morning.

Robbins was taken into custody Sunday night at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima told U-T San Diego. He was driving a silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230 when a border officer referred him to an area for further inspection, she said. Robbins, who was alone in his vehicle, was arrested a short time later after officers learned he was wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

He was named in a felony warrant for crimes against a person, de Cima said.

Robbins was 9 years old when he began doing the voice of Charlie Brown for such films and television specials as A Boy Named Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas, and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
