ABERDEEN, N.J. (AP) – Authorities have accused a New Jersey woman of repeatedly harassing drivers on the Garden State Parkway.

Karen Born was free on $27,500 bail, charged with harassment, falsely incriminating others and filing false reports to law enforcement.

State Police Sgt. Brian Polite said state troopers issued a warrant for Born’s arrest after 22 incidents of alleged harassment over the summer.

Polite told the Asbury Park Press the 52-year-old would cause other motorists to tailgate by braking repeatedly.

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.
