NY 'road rage' rabbi pleads guilty to violationFebruary 27, 2014 @ 12:51 pm
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - 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 ( http://lohud.us/1gFrVvF) 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.
