PARK SLOPE — The community board manager facing charges of stalking his ex-girlfriend has extended his leave of absence from the Brooklyn board for the second time this summer, according to the group's chairman.
Community Board 6 District Manager Craig Hammerman initially took a 60-day medical leave in May that has stretched to five months.
"Craig, on the advice of his medical practitioner, has decided to extend his Leave of Absence until September 27th," wrote CB6 chairman Sayar Lonial in an Aug. 23 emailed statement to the board.
Hammerman, who has worked on the board since 1990 and makes $112,000 a year, initially took time off in May after he was arrested April 2 for hacking his ex's Uber account to follow her to the Hotel RL on Broadway near Lawton Street, according to court documents.
He broke an order of protection five days later after he followed her into Park Slope bar The Gate on Fifth Avenue near Third Street, prosecutors said.
Hammerman turned down a June plea deal that would have forced him to admit to a violation while other more serious charges would have been dropped, his lawyer explained.
The matter is currently being reviewed by the city's Law Department after the board's chairman asked officials to offer legal advice on the situation, Lonial said.
Hammerman's lawyer did not return calls for comment Thursday.
He is due back in court on Sept. 26.
Hammerman will miss Community Board 6's first general board meeting of the season on Sept. 13.
