    Some drivers in the suburbs north of New York City were startled when they saw a man waving his arms, honking his horn and flashing a silver badge in a frantic effort to get them to pull over in traffic.
    Even more surprising was who was suspected of doing it: a respected rabbi.
    Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski has been arrested in one case and is being investigated in at least two more in which authorities say the apparent reason for trying to pull people over was to rage at them for cutting him off or driving too slowly.
    "That girl was driving too slow and I hate when people do this," the 49-year-old Borodowski told investigators after he was charged with impersonating a police officer in June, when he allegedly pulled his Camry alongside a woman's car in Mamaroneck, flashed a badge and shouted, "Police! Police! Pull over!"

    Hell, as a real cop I have never pulled anyone over for driving too slowly.

    Oh, and after reading the story...Badge # 1337 must have already been taken.
