Rabbi Arrested for Impersonating Police Officer, Pulling People Over

Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski does not like it when people drive too slow. And to deal with it, he does the only reasonable thing, going full DMX and impersonating a police officer, flashing a bogus badge while demanding that the offending slowpoke pull over. For some reason, the community in Westchester County is not okay with this.

Bordowski has been arrested–by real cops, presumably–in one case of impersonating a police officer, and is being investigated in several others. Fox News has an insane account of one of Bordowski’s episodes:

“That girl was driving too slow and I hate when people do this,” the 49-year-old Borodowski told investigators after he was charged with impersonating a police officer in June, when he allegedly pulled his Camry alongside a woman’s car in Mamaroneck, flashed a badge and shouted, “Police! Police! Pull over!”

The woman, whose name has not been made public, did not pull over. According to her lawyer, Richard Clifford, the rabbi “just laid on the horn and started screaming at her” as she obeyed a 20-mph limit in a school zone. “She was so freaked out with the horn honking and the screaming that she called police immediately. … I believe my client was in danger with this guy and if she had gotten out of her car it could have escalated.”

Unsurprisingly, the road-raging rabbi likely has bipolar disorder. He’s pleading not guilty.
