Good grief: 'Charlie Brown' arrested on felony stalking charges
Oceanside resident scheduled to be arraigned in court today
Peter Robbins, an Oceanside resident who in his youth gave voice to Charlie Brown's animated incarnation, has been arrested.
The incident occurred Sunday night at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. Robbins was arrested and charged with four felony counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and one felony count of stalking.
Angelica de Cima, spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection told UT San Diego Robbins was driving a silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230 when he was detained. A swipe of his driver's license showed that Robbins was wanted for a felony warrant for crimes against a person.
No further details about the warrant were released. Robbins' manager, Danielle Matthews, declined to discuss the arrest. Pigpen could not be reached for comment.
Robbins provided the voice of Charlie Brown for numerous TV specials including A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. He is scheduled to be arraigned in court today.
If lawyers and King Stahlman prove to be too costly, I know someone who will council Robbins for a reasonable fee.
