Charlie Brown Actor Arrested For Stalking
It's like a sucker punch right in the childhood. Peter Robbins, the voice actor who portrayed America's loveable loser Charlie Brown in the Peanuts specials "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" was arrested Sunday. According to authorities at the San Ysidro port of entry to the United States. Robbins was picked up after a background check revealed a warrant issued by the San Diego Country Sheriff's Department.
Robbins pleaded not guilty Wednesday in San Diego Superior Court to two counts of stalking and 10 counts of making criminal threats.
In late December of last year Robbins allegedly confronted his former girlfriend in a hotel room, beating his dog and telling her he would not stop hurting the animal and would kill her if she did not get a refund for plastic surgery that he had paid for on her behalf.
Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth McClutchey in describing the incident to the judge hearing the case said he, Robbins, then grabbed his ex-girlfriend by the neck and shoved her against the door before fleeing. Robbins also allegedly made threatening phone calls to the plastic surgeon who performed the surgery on his former girlfriend. The surgeon maintains that Robbins phoned her office repeatedly and threatened her with harm if a refund for the breast enhancement procedure was not offered.
Prosecutors also told the judge that Robbins had recently purchased a gun and had been practicing at a shooting range. If convicted, he would face a maximum sentence of up to nine years in prison.
