Ex-actor to get mental testing
A judge has ordered a mental examination for a former child actor who unleashed a verbal tirade during a sentencing hearing.
Peter Robbins, 58, who provided the voice of Charlie Brown in several “Peanuts” television specials, was set to be sentenced Friday for probation violations after pleading guilty to threatening an ex-girlfriend and her plastic surgeon.
But Robbins began yelling and cursing at Judge Robert O’Neil, saying he wanted to withdraw his guilty plea.
O’Neil delayed sentencing and, at the request of Robbins’ attorney, ordered a mental exam for his client. Before being arrested, Robbins lived in Oceanside with his dog, Snoopy.
