Authorities began hunting for the "mystery pooper" after Holmdel High School staff and coaches for football and track reported finding human feces on or near the field almost every day. School employees and police began monitoring the area.
A high school superintendent in New Jersey was caught in the act this week as he pooped on another high school's football field.
A New Jersey schools superintendent is facing public defecation charges after police said he was caught pooping near another school's track and football field.
The mystery of a public pooper has been solved after police arrested a United States school boss.
NJ.com reports that Tramaglini is due in municipal court Monday morning to answer for the pooping-related charges.
On Monday at 05:50 local time (09:50 GMT), officers approached the superintendent while he was running at the school track that is the scene of the alleged crime.

What makes this more interesting is that Tramaglini is the superintendent of a nearby school district, Kenilworth Public Schools. The district said unpaid leave would only occur, "in the face of indictments or tenure charges".
It is unclear why Mr Tramaglini allegedly did not use toilet facilities.
