"I don't appreciate your tone," says Malachi Love-Robinson, the 18-year-old teen accused of impersonating a doctor. The interview goes all down hill from there. Watch ABC News Reporter Matt Gutman try to set the record straight in this bizarre interv

Malachi Love-Robinson, the Delray Beach, Florida teen who was arrested last week for impersonating a doctor, has more legal troubles to handle, including a case in which he allegedly used a bad check to pay for a car.

The Palm Beach Post reports Love-Robinson was sued in August 2015 by the Grieco Mazda dealership for $7,200. In June 2015, Robinson-Love signed over a check for $1,800 to a salesman for a down payment on a new 2016 red Mazda 6. The vehicle was reportedly worth more than $27,000. When the dealership attempted to cash the check, it was refused by the bank because Robinson-Love’s Wells Fargo account was closed.

The dealership is seeking $7,200 in damages for unpaid interest.

Via The Palm Beach Post:

“I am appealing to you as a human being that made a mistake,” he wrote in the letter.

He said he understood the problem and that Grieco Mazda may have had people “con them, but this was not the case.”

“I believe that $7,200 is allot (SIC) to ask for on behalf of a mistake that was made by a young man,” Love-Robinson wrote.

Love-Robinson was arrested last Tuesday for operating a medical office without a license. The 18-year-old denied impersonating a doctor, claiming he only practiced alternative medicine with his naturopathic license, also known as an N.D.

Love-Robinson admitted he suffers from Lupus and was hospitalized at least once for another unknown illness.

The Palm Beach Post continues:

After attending elementary and middle school in St. Lucie County, Love-Robinson found himself too ill to attend high school and some days even go outside, his family says.

“Doctors loaded him up with steroids when he was just a little boy. He only got worse,” said Rebecca McKenzie, Love-Robinson’s grandmother, with whom he lives in West Palm Beach. “Holistic medicine saved him.” Love-Robinson sped through high school and college, which he said he attended online from home.

“I’m blessed by God with brilliance,” he said “I never pretended to be a medical doctor” 
Love-Robinson said, adding that he referred to himself as “Doctor” because of his Ph.D.

In addition to the lawsuit, Love-Robinson is also facing fraud charges for allegedly cashing $2,800 in stolen checks from an 86-year-old woman who happened to be one of his patients.

In October 2015, the Florida Department of Health sent a cease-and-desist order to an addiction therapy facility where Love-Robinson worked. Earlier that same year, he was removed from an outpatient facility at St. Mary’s Medical Center after he was seen wearing a white lab coat in a patient’s room.
