Accused mystery pooper's lawyer: We want full surveillance video from HS track

The Kenilworth school superintendent accused of defecating daily on a high school track near his Monmouth County home in April wants to see the entire surveillance video filmed by police. 

Thomas W. Tramaglini, of Aberdeen, was charged by Holmdel police with public urination/defecation, littering and lewdness. All are disorderly persons offenses that don’t carry jail time. 

Tramaglini, 42, made his first appearance in municipal court on Tuesday. 

Tramaglini’s attorney, Matthew S. Adams, told Municipal Court Judge Mary H. Casey that his client has received “snippets” of the surveillance video and has other issues with the discovery provided by the prosecutor, including the metadata, or information, attached to the video. 

The prosecutor, Stephen Zebarsky, said he has given Adams the narrative report from police, an evidence property report and two discs, including the surveillance video and Holmdel police dispatch audio. 

Tramaglini, dressed in a gray suit and a light-blue tie, did not say a word during the brief court appearance. He didn’t answer any questions from the hoard of reporters that surrounded him as he walked to a sport utility vehicle waiting for him outside the municipal building. 

Tramaglini was arrested as he was running on the track just before 6 a.m. on April 30. 

Police began monitoring the track at Holmdel High School, which is about three miles from Tramaglini’s residence, after receiving reports of human feces being found daily, authorities said.

Officials were soon able to identify Tramaglini as the person responsible for defecating on the track, according to Holmdel police. 

According to the arrest report, there are two DVDs with surveillance video footage.

The township declined to release the footage to NJ Advance Media, saying it could compromise the school’s “security measures and surveillance techniques.”

Tramaglini is suspended with pay from his $147,505 a year job until June 30. 

Adams, his attorney, previously chided the media for reporting “falsehoods” about his client, but wouldn’t say what those falsehoods were.
