HADDON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — A southern New 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 (http://on.cpsj.com/11FZFjg) 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’s ex-wife also works at Haddon Township High School and the dog-waste incident happened in a school parking lot.

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

Cerf did say he could be suspended without pay and denied future raises.
