(Newser) – As if the "voice of Elmo" scandal wasn't enough to wreck our childhood memories, now the voice of Charlie Brown has been arrested. Peter Robbins, who voiced the popular animated character as a child, was busted in San Diego Sunday night and will be arraigned today on one felony count of stalking, plus four felony charges of making threats. No details are available yet about his alleged crimes.

Robbins, whose Facebook page lists him as Peter "Charlie Brown" Robbins, was stopped at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, alone in his Mercedes. A border officer referred him for a more detailed examination, and that was when the system discovered the 56-year-old was wanted on a warrant for crimes against a person, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. (In other recent news that could leave emotional scars on a certain age group: Patrick Leach, the 27-year-old son of Barney the purple dinosaur's creator Sheryl Leach, was arrested in California for attempted murder earlier this month.)
