'Pooperintendent' Resigns From His Job

Thomas Tramaglini had a really good job.

He made $150,000 a year as the Superintendent of Schools for the Kenilworth School District in Holmdel, New Jersey, a job he's had since 2016.

He also couldn't stop pooping on a rival school's property.  

Yep, you heard that right.  Seriously, we're not kidding.

The story originally came to light after Tramaglini, 42, was arrested by police after they caught him on tape pooping on the track and football field at Holmdel High School.

And, it gets better. Apparently, he did this on a DAILY basis.  

It baffled the community for weeks, police kept getting reports about human feces being found on the track, but couldn't catch the culprit.  So they decided to set up a camera to find the mystery pooper. 

According to CBS News (and you're going to love how they worded this) on April 30th it paid off:

"Tramaglini was arrested when cameras reportedly captured the Kenilworth official coming back for his eighth daily dump just before 6 a.m. Eastern time. He was charged with lewdness, littering, defecating in public, and was immediately put on a paid leave of absence by the school district."

The story and Tramaglini's mugshot made news nationwide, and he was dubbed the 'Pooperintendent'.

And now, the 'pooperintendent' is out of a job.

According to a statement released by Kenilworth school officials:

Based on events unrelated to his service for Kenilworth, it has become clear to both Dr. Tramaglini and the Kenilworth Board of Education that his continued service as Superintendent of Schools has become too much of a distraction to the main mission of the district."

According to the statement, Tramaglini has resigned (from doody), effective September 30.

But, Tramaglini is still planning on suing the cops that arrested him.  


His attorney, Matthew Adams, told NJ.com that the mugshot released by police, created a 'malicious narrative' about his client and his pooping antics. 

Adams said Tramaglini never even should have been photographed by police, because the charges: public defecation, lewdness and littering, are considered 'low-level' offenses. 

“It’s like getting photographed and fingerprinted for a speeding ticket."

The court filing says:

"On May 1, 2018, officers or agents of the Holmdel Police Department unlawfully took Dr. Tramaglini's photograph and distributed and disseminated the 'mug shot' to third parties, including the media with the intent to harm Dr. Tramaglini,"

The filing lists Tramaglini's 'potential damages' of more than $1 million, due to:

"Loss of income, harm to his reputation, emotional distress and invasion of privacy."

Well, let's just see if he can resist the urge to poop in court.
