WEST PALM BEACH (AP) — New charges of grand theft and fraud have been filed against a Palm Beach teen who was arrested earlier this year for reportedly pretending to be a doctor and stealing money from an 86-year-old patient.

Malachi Love-Robinson, 19, who had been out on bond, was back in the Palm Beach County Jail on Monday. Love-Robinson, who had been free on $18,000 bail, was released after another $8,000 in bail was posted.

Court records show Love-Robinson is now also accused of writing a bad check for $1,500 as a down payment for a car.

Love-Robinson was arrested in February after deputies say he was practicing medicine without a license and stole more than $35,000 from a patient.

Love-Robinson says he never claimed to be a medical doctor.
