Superintendent of Stools arrested for ‘Defecating on school playing fields every day’
May 4, 2018 – A US education chief has been charged with repeatedly defecating on a high school football field and running track.
District superintendent Thomas Tramaglini, 42, was identified as the “mystery pooper” of Holmdel, New Jersey, after staff set up surveillance cameras.
He was arrested as he returned to the scene of the crime at Holmdel High School at 5.50am last Monday.
Police officers are believed to have observed him evacuating his bowels before confronting him as he began running at the school track.
Mr Tramaglini, who lives in nearby Matawan, New Jersey, was charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public.
Holmdel Township Police Department said in a statement that staff and coaches at the school “were finding human faeces on or near the area of the High School track and football field on a daily basis.
The fact Mr Tramaglini has not been convicted of any crime has not stopped him being variously dubbed the "Pooperintendent”, the “poopetrator” and the “Mad Crapper” online.
