(CBS/AP) SAN DIEGO - The voice actor who portrayed Charlie Brown in many "Peanuts" shows was arrested Sunday on stalking and other charges, authorities said.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman Angelica de Cima told U-T San Diego that 56-year-old Peter Robbins was arrested at the San Ysidro Port of Entry. 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.

Robbins is set to be arraigned Wednesday on counts of making a threat to cause death or great bodily injury and of stalking.

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