Judge orders jail for 19-year-old accused of impersonating doctor

WEST PALM BEACH — A Palm Beach County judge has revoked the bail of a 19-year-old man accused of impersonating a doctor after he was arrested in Virginia on charges he tried to illegally buy a car.

Circuit Judge Krista Marx revoked Malachi Love-Robinson's $26,000 bond Wednesday and ordered him jailed if he is brought back to Palm Beach County.

Love-Robinson was arrested last week in Stafford, Va., on charges he tried to buy a Lexus using a fake earnings statement. He remains jailed there.

Love-Robinson was arrested in February after law enforcement officials said he was practicing medicine without a license. Authorities in Palm Beach County said Love-Robinson was illegally operating a medical practice, complete with an office, a lab coat and stethoscope. He also was accused of stealing $35,000 from a patient. He has denied the charges.
