'Road rage' rabbi who impersonated cop pleads guilty

Rabbi confronted a woman driving in a school zone. Authorities say he acknowledged that he held up a fake badge while yelling

Associated Press

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A Westchester County rabbi accused of impersonating a police officer as he lashed out at slower drivers has pleaded guilty to a violation.

The Journal News says Alfredo Borodowski pleaded guilty Thursday in Mamaroneck (muh-MEHR'-uh-nehk) Village Court to second-degree harassment. He will get no jail time or probation if he stays out of trouble for a year.

He had already pleaded guilty under the same terms in Greenburgh, White Plains and Yonkers.

Authorities say slow drivers enraged Borodowski.

In the Mamaroneck encounter, he confronted a woman driving in a school zone. Authorities say he acknowledged that he held up a fake badge while yelling.

The rabbi asked for forgiveness outside court. He has received psychiatric treatment and says he wants to be a "voice" for people with mental illness.
