New Jersey "Pooper-intendent" arrested for defecating on football field

School staff at a New Jersey high school have been finding human feces near their track "on a daily basis", police say, and now an unlikely suspect is charged - the superintendent of a nearby school district.

"The SRO, along with school staff, monitored the area and was able to identify a subject responsible for the acts", according to the post.

"It's definitely something that if I was the coach I would be concerned about, and [the coaches] definitely are too", a member of the Holmdel High School track team told ABC station WABC.

New Jersey police have charged Kenilworth Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Tramaglini with relieving himself in public early Monday morning after school officials reported finding "daily" deposits of excrement by an athletic field.

The Kenilworth School Board issued a statement after learning about the matter. He's due in Holmdel municipal court Monday to answer for the charges.

Not only did the Seahawks select Dickson with their fifth-round selection, they traded up to do so. La Canfora has previously reported they wanted a first- and third-round pick.

The district said Director of Academics Brian Luciani will step in for Tramaglini, who has served as superintendent since 2015.

"Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence".

The two school districts are about 30 miles apart.

The statement added that state law means leave without pay can only be granted in cases of "indictments or tenure charges".

It also promised to "continue to keep the community informed".
