    A South Jersey school administrator who was caught on camera putting dog waste on his wife's car has retired just weeks after the state education commissioner decided he could not be fired.

    Haddon Township school officials tell the Courier-Post that athletic director Alan Carr's retirement was accepted Thursday.

    Supporters who did not know he was retiring showed up to a school board that meeting to ask that he be reinstated.

    Carr was caught on camera May 12 putting the waste on the windshield of his ex-wife's car in a school parking lot. His ex-wife is also teacher at Haddon Township High School.

    At first Carr denied putting the feces and other trash on his wife’s car but he later admitted it after seeing the video, reported the Courier-Post.

    Carr reportedly admitted to wanting to give the message that his wife is “a piece of crap, according to a ruling by Administrative Law Judge Jeff Masin that was obtained by the Courier-Post.

    Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf ruled last month that while Carr behaved inappropriately, he could not be fired for it.

    In the ruling Carr agreed to leaving his ex-wife alone when he returns to work.

    Carr has worked in the district since 1974 and has served as AD for more than two decades earning more than $110,000 last year, reported the paper.
