The since-fired Hunter College professor who held a machete to a Post reporter’s neck was released by a Bronx judge Thursday night during a court hearing attended by numerous supporters.
Shellyne Rodriguez, 45, made her first court appearance in Bronx Criminal Court, where she was arraigned on charges of menacing and harassment over the frightening confrontation with a veteran Post scribe inside her Bronx apartment building earlier in the week.
About a half-dozen supporters attended the brief hearing and one even clapped after a judge released Rodriguez on her own recognizance.
Rodriguez then walked out of the courthouse with four or five of the pals and hit up a Burger King to order some food.
Earlier Thursday, Rodiguez turned herself in to the 43rd Precinct.

She did not spend 12 hours in custody before being released and enjoying a fast-food meal with friends.
And truthfully, none of us is surprised.
She will get her job back and probably make some extra money selling he story on how she was abused by Right Wing Media and the MAGA Twitter.
And that is why I do not care what happens to the Rotten Apple. They deserve it.

At least she got charged with something.
Give it a couple of months out of the public’s eye and the charges will be dropped. That is my prediction.
Meanwhile, Bragg is still going full tilt to imprison Trump on charges that are so broad (and unsubstantiated) that everyone alive is equally guilty of a “crime” of that magnitude.
