    A South Florida teen has been arrested after authorities say he was posing as a doctor at an illegal medical office he ran.

    The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says in a news release that 18-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson was arrested Tuesday and charged with practicing medicine without a license.

    Love-Robinson was being held on $6,000 bail Tuesday. Jail records didn't list an attorney.

    At the West Palm Beach clinic he opened, officials say Love-Robinson performed a physical exam on an undercover agent and offered medical advice Tuesday.

    The release says detectives and the Florida Department of Health began investigating earlier this month. Love-Robinson had been previously investigated in October and cited with practicing medicine without a license.

    "Just because you saw a season of 'Grey's Anatomy' doesn't mean you could practice medicine," the sheriff's office tweeted Tuesday.
