NY - The lawyer for a Larchmont Rabbi accused of stopping three area motorists recently while claiming to be a police officer has been hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar disorder according to a statement released by his attorney on Monday.
LOHUD.com Reports that Andrew Rubin, the attorney representing 49 year-old Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski, who lives in White Plains and who serves as rabbi at Congregation Sulam Yaakov in Larchmont, said that his client has been receiving “intensive” treatment for bipolar disorder at a local hospital where he has been an inpatient for a large chunk of the past several weeks.
Borodowski was arrested and charged with “first-degree impersonation” last month after he attempted to pull over a Mamaroneck woman for driving “too slowly” in a school zone.
Borodowski’s June arrest prompted two other alleged victims to come forward, including a 26 year-old Scarsdale man whose passenger documented Borodowski’s antics on video.
Both subsequent cases remain under investigation by state and local authorities.
