The mystery of who was pooping on the football field at a high school has been solved after the alleged culprit was revealed to be...a superintendent.

Holmdel High School

According to police, staff and coaches at Holmdel High School in New Jersey had been "finding human feces, on or near the area of the high school track / football field on a daily basis."

After monitoring the area Monday, the mystery pooper was — ahem — caught with his pants down.

The superintendent of the nearby Kenilworth Public Schools district, 42-year-old Thomas Tramaglini, had been running on the track around 5:50 a.m. before his arrest, reported.

Tramaglini was charged with lewdness, littering, and defecating in public, police said.

Tramaglini has been granted a paid leave of absence, according to his school district.

Administrators added that "leaves can only be without pay in the face of indictments or tenure charges, as a matter of state law."

Tramaglini did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Tramaglini is the superintendent of the Kenilworth Public Schools district. A previous version of this article misstated his association with Holmdel High School.
