Love-Robinson, 23, was booked Thursday morning into the Palm Beach County Jail in south Florida on charges of grand theft and fraud, jail records show.
CNN has attempted to reach Love-Robinson for comment.
According to a probable cause affidavit from the Delray Beach Police Department, Love-Robinson, a contracted employee for a shipping broker, is accused of stealing from his employer in early 2020 by rerouting payments from the business to his personal accounts, causing a total loss of $10,129.81.
According to the affidavit, Love-Robinson’s employer showed police screenshots of text conversations where Love-Robinson allegedly stated he “f***ed himself” and that he was “doing everything [he] can to make it right.”
“I don’t want to go to jail,” another text message said, according to the affidavit. Love-Robinson later told his employer he had refunded the money, but the employer told police no money was ever received, the affidavit said.
According to jail records, Love-Robinson was released from Palm Beach County Jail on a surety bond Thursday evening.
Love-Robinson first ran into trouble with the Florida Department of Health in October 2015, which filed a cease-and-desist notice accusing him of practicing medicine without a license, a department spokesman told CNN.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s narcotics unit, along with the Florida Department of Health, carried out an operation in which an undercover officer visited Love-Robinson’s office. Love-Robinson physically examined the officer and provided medical advice, according to the sheriff’s office, culminating in his arrest.
At the time of his arrest he was 18 years old, yet his profile on a medical review website listed his age as 25. The website said the information was ultimately supplied by Love-Robinson, his office or on his behalf.
Love-Robinson at the time denied the claims, stating he never portrayed himself as an M.D. but rather as having a Ph.D.
