Authorities in California say the voice actor who portrayed Charlie Brown in many Peanuts shows has been arrested on charges that include stalking.

Peter Robbins was arrested on Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, said US Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima.

She told University of Texas San Diego that a background check yielded a warrant against Robbins from the San Diego County sheriff's department.

A sheriff's spokeswoman said she did not have details about the warrant.

The 56-year-old is set to be arraigned on Wednesday on counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and of stalking.

His manager has declined to comment.

Robbins was the voice of Charlie Brown for TV specials, A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
