As Charlie Brown would say, "Oh, brother."
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 police.
Robbins was arrested shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. He was trying to cross the border when an officer referred him to a another area for a more thorough examination, at which point a systems check determined that Robbins was wanted by the San Diego County Sheriff's Department for a felony warrant. Robbins was then booked into jail at approximately 4 a.m. Monday and was being held on $550,000 bail.
Robbins voiced Charlie Brown in some of the character's most popular specials, including A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, as well as the film A Boy Named Charlie Brown. He voiced the character from the age of 9 until age 14, when his voice changed. He later appeared in TV shows such as The Munsters and Get Smart.
