An 18-year-old West Palm Beach man who was arrested last month on charges of impersonating a doctor is back in jail.

Palm Beach County Jail records show that Malachi Love-Robinson was booked Tuesday at 11:05 p.m. Records show he now faces five charges of fraud, larceny of at least $20,000 and using someone's identity without their consent.

Love-Robinson was arrested on Feb. 16 on grand theft charges but later posted bail and was released.

An 86-year-old woman has claimed Love-Robinson defrauded her after a series of visits to her home to treat her for severe stomach pain.

Love-Robinson has defended his actions and claims he never told anyone he was a medical doctor. He has claimed to have a PhD several times but has never been willing to say in what field or show documentation.
