    PEQUANNOCK, N.J. -- A Paterson man faces child endangerment charges after allegedly showing up at a Roman Catholic school clad in a diaper and pink stretch pants.

    William Rhode III, 53, was wearing an orange jumpsuit and handcuffs when he appeared Tuesday in Superior Court in Morristown. Judge Salem Vincent Ahto wanted to make sure Rhode understood the charge lodged against him.

    Rhode nodded his head when the judge asked if he understood the charge. Ahto then ordered him returned to Morris County jail in lieu of $75,000 bail.

    Rhode is scheduled to undergo a psychiatric evaluation on March 12.

    Police said he showed up at Holy Spirit School at dismissal on Feb. 13 seeking a job application. When his request was denied, he defecated in the diaper and fled on foot, police said.

    Lincoln Park police arrested him a short time later near a supermarket.
