Peter Robbins, the Voice of the Animated Peanuts Character “Charlie Brown” Arrested on 5 Felony Charges for Making Death Threats and Stalking
I guess we all missed the Peanuts special … You’re a Felon Charlie Brown
Suddenly Charlie Brown having Lucy pull the football out from under him as he is trying to kick it or him getting a lump of coal at Halloween sounds rather trivial. The lovable failure might have outdone himself this time. Peter Robbins, who as a child was the voice of Peanuts character ‘Charlie Brown’ was arrested on five felony charges and is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday. Robbins was stopped at the San Ysidro Port of Entry between San Diego and Tijuana. The 56 year old Robbins was charged with four felony counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and one felony count of stalking. I must have missed the ‘Peanuts’ special … You’re a felon Charlie Brown. Robbins is being held on $550,000 bail.
I guess Charlie Brown should have spent more time in psychiatric help or paid more than 5 cents a session
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. 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.
Jan Caldwell, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department, said Tuesday night that she did not immediately have details about the warrant.
Robbins provided the voice of Charlie Brown in several “Peanuts” productions in the late 1960s, including the film “A Boy Named Charlie Brown” and television specials “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” The television shows remain popular today.
Damn, first the voice of Elmo and now Charlie Brown? Who’s next, Barney the Dinosaur?
