Cops: Woman harassed drivers by repeatedly braking

Authorities accused a New Jersey woman of repeatedly harassing drivers on the Garden State Parkway by braking repeatedly, causing other motorists to tailgate. Karen Born, 52, was free on $27,500 bail, charged with harassment, falsely incriminating others and filing false reports to law enforcement.

State Police Sgt. Brian Polite told the Asbury Park Press that state troopers issued a warrant for Born's arrest after 22 incidents of alleged harassment over the summer.

Polite said Born would call police after the other driver pulled over and claim the other driver was harassing and stalking her.

It was not clear whether Born had retained an attorney.
