New Jersey superintendent accused of repeatedly defecating on another school's property

Thomas Tramaglini, the superintendent of the Kenilworth (N.J.) School District, has been charged with lewdness and defecating in public.

The superintendent of a New Jersey school district has been arrested for repeatedly defecating on a another school's property.

ABC News reports that Thomas Tramaglini, the superintendent of the Kenilworth School District, was taken into custody while he was running on the Holmdel High School track.

Holmdel Township Police Sgt. Theodore Sigismondi says Tramaglini, 42, has been charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public.

“Holmdel High staff and coaches were finding human feces on or near the area of the high school track/football field on a daily basis,” according to a police statement.

The school's staff began monitoring the area and identified Tramaglini, who lives several miles away from the school, as the person leaving feces on the property.

The two school districts are about 30 miles apart.

Tramaglini requested and was granted a paid leave of absence from the Kenilworth School District, where he was appointed superintendent in December 2015.

While the case is pending against Tramaglini, Brian Luciani, the Kenilworth district's director of academics, will handle the duties of superintendent to ensure that the district continues “its responsibilities without interruption,” according to a statement released by the Kenilworth school board.
