ABINGTON, Mass.—The chairman of the Abington School Committee has resigned just days after performing a magic trick before a meeting shown live on cable television that made it appear as if he removed the bra from fellow board member.

Russell FitzGerald said he resigned Monday after a weekend of reflection.

He tells The Enterprise of Brockton ( http://bit.ly/qdMQCU) that fallout from the trick, met with stunned silence and embarrassment, played a part in his decision. He also said he's been on the board 11 years and his term is almost up.

FitzGerald is an amateur magician who started meetings with a trick.

Neither the subject of the Sept. 27 bra trick, nor his accomplice, knew what was going to happen.

Meanwhile, the school department is refusing to release video of the incident.
