Malachi Love-Robinson has been arrested again, this time for grand theft and writing bad checks.
Fake teen doctor Malachi Love-Robinson has been arrested again.
Earlier this year the 19-year-old scammer was arrested for posing as doctor and using clients' information to steal money. Love-Robinson, who went by Dr. Love, was charged with two counts of practice of naturopathy without a license, two counts of practicing medicine without a license, two counts of grand theft from a person 65 or older, three counts of forgery, and three counts of fraudulent use of personal identification information.

Back in March, Love-Robinson's lawyer, Andrew Stine, told reporters, "He has the entrepreneurial spirit of someone like a Donald Trump or a Bill Gates. I’ve never met somebody — and I’m much older obviously — who has such entrepreneurial spirit. If it was channeled maybe in a different direction, things could be different here today."
According to Pix 11, the teen is now being accused of writing a bad check for $1,500, which he used as a down payment for a car, and grand theft. More information on the grand theft charge has yet to be released. Love-Robinson, who had been out on bond, was released after paying $8,000 in bail.
