The school resource officer and school staff monitored the area and identified the "mystery pooper" as Thomas Tramaglini, 42, of Matawan. And Tramaglini did not immediately return a phone call to his home.

Many on social media jumped to Tramaglini's defense.

After Tramaglini took his job leave, the district named Brian Luciani, the district's director of academics, as the acting superintendent of schools. According to The Independent, Tramaglini is scheduled to appear in Holmdel Municipal Court on May 7.
