WJLA reported that 19-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson was removed from a Stafford, Virginia auto dealership after allegedly trying to buy a vehicle.

Employees at Kargar Motors Car Dealership in Stafford grew suspicious when 19-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson and an elderly woman attempted to buy a Jaguar for $35,000, FOX40 sister station WTVR reported.

She told deputies that she did not give Love-Robinson permission to use her as a co-signer for the loan.

After they learned more about Love-Robinson's past - those workers called investigators.

The 73-year-old woman with him was not his mother, which led employees to believe the teen used her as a prop.

After a quick internet search of his name later and the dealership called the police.

The employees were concerned that Love-Robison might have been trying to fraudulently buy the auto and stealing money from the woman he claimed to be his mother, a police spokesperson told reporters.

The deputies approached Love-Robinson and spoke with him, then spoke directly with the elderly woman he was with. Robinson told authorities he had planned to buy a vehicle for himself and one for the woman, who he described as his godmother, said the television station.

The task Davis Love III faces in the coming hours in determining three of his four captain's pick for the U.S. It hosted the Tony Jacklin charity event, a venue where Jacklin twice captained the European Ryder Cup team.

Closer to home, Love-Robinson is in a mess of legal troubles in Florida for allegedly opening a medical practice in West Palm Beach and seeing patients without a license.

This isn't Love-Robinson's first car-related fraud charge, either - he was arrested and charged in Florida last month for trying to use a bad check to make a down payment on a vehicle.

She told deputies she was a distant relative of the teen's, the sheriff's office said. He then suspiciously tried to use her name as a co-signer on the loan.

And a check of the woman's credit card history revealed a $1,200 charge from Thursday for two iPads and a cell phone, which she told the deputies she hadn't purchased. Love-Robinson illegally operated a medical practice for months in Palm Beach County. "They were seized along with other items at the time of his arrest".

The teenager who made headlines in Florida after posing as a doctor is facing more fraud charges. Love-Robinson left jail after that August arrest after he paid a $8,000 in bail.

Dr. Love is back at it - at least, according to law enforcement. He was caught after performing a physical exam on an undercover agent and offering medical advice.
