Tramaglini has been charged with public defecation, lewdness and littering.

According to authorities, Tramaglini was caught last week following an early morning run at Holmdel High School's athletic facilities.

Police said staff members were watching to see who was leaving human feces on the property on a regular basis.

Tramaglini is superintendent of the school district in Kenilworth, about 25 miles from Holmdel.

He's on paid leave from his $147,504-a-year job.
