Charlie Brown Voice Actor Arrested, Facing Several Felonies
Charlie Brown voice actor Peter Robbins has been arrested on multiple charges including stalking, according to several local news reports.
The Charlie Brown voice actor, 56, appears to be in some significant legal straits right now — facing five felony counts, as detailed in public arrest records. Robbins is listed on the site as having been arrested by US Customs, with bail for the vocal performer set at more than half a million dollars.
A local news source explains that the Charlie Brown voice actor was taken into custody this week by agents of Border Patrol, but it is not precisely clear whether the arrest came as a result of actions in that immediate time frame or simply was due to outstanding warrants:
“Robbins was arrested shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, said Angelica de Cima, spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He was driving a silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230 when a border officer referred him to an area for a more thorough examination, she said.”
The report continues, saying the Charlie Brown voice actor was identified and arrested after the more thorough check:
“He was the only person in the car at the time … A systems check determined that Robbins was wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department for a felony warrant for crimes against a person, De Cima said.”
According to ABC, Robbins was arrested in part on charges relating (in addition to stalking) to threatening bodily harm and death, though the incident that caused his arrest has not been detailed by police.
The Charlie Brown voice actor worked on many of the Peanuts classics appearing each holiday season since the late 60s and interacts with fans on Facebook regularly.
