‘Voice of Charlie Brown' Arrested For Stalking, Terminally Ill
Hide your kids! Charlie Brown is the latest childhood character to be arrested.
First it was Elmo who was accused of child molestation. Then it was Barney’s son who was arrested for attempted murder. Now, it seems that Peter Robbins, who voiced Charlie Brown in those first “Peanuts” TV specials, was arrested Sunday on outstanding warrants and charges of threatening violence.
Robbins, 56, was arrested in Southern California and plead not-guilty on 12 counts involving criminal threats and stalking. The former child actor faces as much as nine years in prison if convicted. Robbins reportedly has terminal pancreatic cancer as well. According to the U-T San Diego, a district attorney investigator argued in court documents that his “change in behavior and terminal illness made him a danger to the community.” This just goes to show that no childhood animated character is safe from being tainted by a criminal background.
