GREENBURGH, N.Y. — New York state police say they're investigating another complaint about a rabbi with a fake badge who's already been charged three times with impersonating an officer.

They say a woman from Mount Vernon told them she recognized Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski from recent news stories. She says he confronted her in May on a parkway ramp in Greenburgh, 20 miles north of New York City.

The woman tells police the rabbi tailgated her. She says he got out of his car at a red light, waved a badge and threatened to arrest her before driving away.

Borodowski hasn't been charged in the incident. A call to his lawyer on Friday hasn't been returned.

The rabbi grew up in Argentina. He's been charged in similar episodes in Mamaroneck (muh-MAHR'-uh-nek), White Plains and Yonkers. He's pleaded not guilty.
