WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A suburban New York rabbi has been arrested for the second time on a charge of impersonating a police officer.
Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski was accused last month of flashing a fake badge at a fellow motorist in Mamaroneck (muh-MAHR'-uh-nek), just north of New York City. Police in White Plains on Wednesday accused him of doing the same thing there in May.
Lt. Eric Fisher says the rabbi surrendered at police headquarters. No arraignment has been scheduled for the rabbi, who grew up in Argentina.
In both cases, other drivers alleged Borodowski seemed to be in a rage because he was behind them and wanted them to speed up.
He told Mamaroneck police he hates it when people drive too slowly.
A defense lawyer says Borodowski suffers from bipolar disorder.
State police are investigating a third incident, in Yonkers.
