SAN DIEGO — Peter Robbins, an Oceanside resident who as a child actor was the voice of the animated “Charlie Brown” character of “Peanuts” fame, has been arrested and is scheduled to be arraigned in court on Wednesday in San Diego on five felony charges, authorities said.
Robbins, 56, is 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.
He was booked into jail shortly before 4 a.m. Monday and was being held on $550,000 bail, according to the jail records.
His manager, Danielle Matthews, said Tuesday night that she could not discuss the arrest but would comment later Wednesday.
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.
With the purpose of writing about true crime in an authoritative, fact-based manner, veteran journalists J. J. Maloney and J. Patrick O’Connor launched Crime Magazine in November of 1998.
Their goal was to cover all aspects of true crime: from organized crime to serial killers, from capital punishment to prisons, from historical crimes to celebrity crime, from assassinations to government corruption, from justice issues to innocent cases, from crime films to books about crime.
