Peter Robbins, the man behind the voice of "Peanuts" character Charlie Brown, was arrested Sunday on stalking and other felony charges in San Diego.
Robbins, 56, was charged with four felony counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and one felony count of stalking, according to the San Diego County jail website.
California authorities told Yahoo!'s The Wrap that the voice actor was detained at a border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, about 8 p.m. Sunday.
Robbins was driving a silver 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230 when a border officer referred him to an area for a more thorough examination, Angelica De Cima, spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, told U-T San Diego
. He was the only person in the car at the time.
Officials checked and determined Robbins was wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department for a felony warrant for crimes against a person, De Cima said.
Both the sheriff's department and Robbins' manager declined to elaborate on the charges against the voice actor.
Robbins acted as 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." He got the gig when he was just 9-years-old.
Robbins later appeared in television shows such as "F Troop," "The Munsters" and "Get Smart," and also acted in several movies.
On Facebook, Robbins goes under the name Peter "Charlie Brown" Robbins, and regularly interacts with fans of the show, which is still popular today.
Robbins is currently being held on $550,000 bail, U-T San Diego said. His arraignment was scheduled for Wednesday.
Robbins' arrest follows last year's controversy surrounding longtime Elmo voice actor, Kevin Clash
Clash, who did the voice of the lovable "Sesame Street" character for 28 years, resigned in November after allegations surfaced that he allegedly engaged in sexual relationships with underage boys. Clash and his accuser reached a $125,000 settlement, which required the accuser to recant his story, but new accusations then arose from a second person shortly after.
