Woman accused of beating BX bus driver out without bail

The woman accused of beating a bus driver in The Bronx earlier this week following a dispute over her dog has been released from prison on her own recognizance.

Police say Steangeli Medina brutally attacked Marlene Biene-Aime when she tried to board the Bx9 bus with her dog on Tuesday. Fellow MTA drivers say they're outraged and that Medina's release without bail shows an unprecedented disrespect for bus operators.

Despite being released, Medina still faces several charges, including a felony for assault. If convicted, she could face up to seven years in prison.
