WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A rabbi was charged on Wednesday — for the second time — with impersonating a police officer during an angry confrontation on a suburban road.

In both cases, motorists said the rabbi flashed a badge and seemed to be angry that they weren't driving faster.

Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski, accompanied by his lawyer, surrendered at police headquarters in White Plains, Detective Lt. Eric Fisher said.

There was no immediate arraignment. The rabbi has a court date on Thursday in Mamaroneck, just north of New York City, on his first arrest, which occurred in June.

The lawyer said Borodowski suffers from bipolar disorder and recently was hospitalized.

In the Mamaroneck case, the 49-year-old rabbi, who grew up in Argentina, is accused of pulling his car alongside a woman's car, flashing a badge and shouting: “Police! Police! Pull over!”

The woman's lawyer said Borodowski “just laid on the horn and started screaming at her” as she obeyed a 20-mph limit in a school zone.
