A New York City rabbi who kept driving when a Vermont state trooper tried to pull him over for speeding has pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempting to elude in a traffic stop that his family called traumatizing.

Rabbi Berl Fink appeared in court Wednesday. He’s accused of failing to stop for suspected speeding for 4.5 miles on a remote interstate highway on Aug. 8.

Police video shows that after he pulled over, the trooper ordered him at gunpoint to lie on the ground and handcuffed him, as well as his son and wife.

His son has said he and his family felt they were targets of a terrorist attack.

A police investigation found that Trooper Justin Thompson acted according to his training and police policy and there was no evidence of bias.
