Rabbi Charged with Impersonating Police in New York

Masqueraded as a traffic officer


WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.—A rabbi accused of impersonating a police officer was greeted by real officers shortly after his release from a psychiatric hospitalization.

Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski surrendered to White Plains police shortly after 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and was charged with misdemeanor criminal impersonation, accused of flashing a badge while screaming at a motorist to stop.

White Plains, the 49-year-old rabbi's hometown, is one of three jurisdictions where he's been accused of masquerading as a traffic officer.
