Thomas Tramaglini, 42, who has been the superintendent in the Kenilworth School District since 2015, was arrested on Monday after he was seen defecating on the Holmdel High School football field and track, NJ.com reports. For some reason, Holmdel High School officials would show up to the footbal field and find poop there for some odd reason, but no one knew where it came from.
Tramaglini requested paid leave from the Kenilworth district, which was granted, according to a post by the district. Director of Academics Brian Luciani will take over in Tramaglini's absence.
Mr Tramaglini is charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public.
The superintendent will make a court appearance on May 7.
