FL Teen Who Posed As Doctor Arrested Again

An 18-year-old teen arrested after officials discovered that he was posing as a certified physician is back in the hands of law enforcement.

Malachi Love-Robinson was taken into custody on Tuesday. The most recent arrest follows Love-Robinson’s detainment on accusations that he impersonated a doctor at a West Palm Beach hospital in 2015.

He appeared in court Wednesday morning and was ordered by Judge Joseph Marx to undergo a mental health assessment.

Love-Robinson was booked around 11 p.m. Tuesday on one count of larceny and five counts of using another person’s identification without consent, according to records obtained by the Sun Sentinel.

The teen’s latest charges are connected to allegations that he was cashing stolen checks he got during house calls he made to 86-year-old Anita Morrison, who said she found the teen through an online search for a physician.

“Maybe I wanted to believe because I was in such pain,” Morrison said. “I just went along with it.”
