Yet another alleged Arizona scumbag was arrested out of state -- this time for molesting grown men.

The Los Angeles Police Department says Jeffrey Graybill, 40, was arrested on September 30 for pretending to be a Los Angeles fertility doctor called "Dr. Richardson," in order to sexually molest patients in Arizona and California.

With absolutely no medical training, Graybill posted ads on Craigslist to solicit victims, offering to pay men as much as $4,000 to be sperm donors for "stem cell [or] other research," the LAPD statement alleges. He'd meet the men either at their homes or his, and would "conduct physical examinations," fondling his victims in the process, according to Officer Justin Malcuit, a lead investigator in the case

Although two Los Angeles victims complained, investigators say they were able to identify 24 others in Arizona and California after going through "Dr. Richardson's" emails.

Graybill is charged with sexual battery by fraud, penetration by a foreign object, identity theft, and practicing medicine without a license.

And in case you were wondering... None of the victims got paid.
