Good grief! First Elmo and now Charlie Brown.
According to TMZ, Peter Robbins, 56 — who voiced Chuck in A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown — was arrested in the San Diego area this weekend after a background check revealed a warrant for his arrest. He's supposed to be arraigned today for allegedly "making a threat to cause great death or bodily injury and stalking."
They don't mention any of the specific allegations against him. We can't blame him if he threatened Lucy, after all those football gags.
