State to review defecating school superintendent’s claim police acted unlawfully
New Jersey's attorney general's office is reviewing claims by a former school superintendent that police acted unlawfully when they distributed his mug shot after he was charged with public defecation.
An attorney for Thomas Tramaglini sent the letter to Attorney General Gurbir Grewal asking for an investigation.
A spokesman for Grewal said Tuesday the matter was being reviewed but declined to elaborate.
Tramaglini was issued summonses in May after police alleged he repeatedly defecated on the Holmdel High School track.
He eventually pleaded guilty to relieving himself in public and resigned as superintendent of the Kenilworth school district.
