She then headed to the nearby “Occupy City Hall” encampment, where she disappeared inside a makeshift, black tent.

Reyes was freed following her video arraignment on multiple counts of second-degree assault and related charges Friday morning.

During the hearing, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge John Howard-Algarin her bail at $7,500 cash or credit card, $40,000 insurance company bond or $60,000 surety bond.

The city Department of Correction didn’t immediately respond to an inquiry about how she secured her release.

Reyes is accused of attacking NYPD Lt. Michael Butler and Sgt. Richard Adamiak — leaving them with blood streaming down their faces — as they arrested a fellow anti-cop activist on Wednesday.

The incident came amid clashes that erupted when counter-demonstrators attempted to disrupt a “unity” march against the bridge that included a contingent from the Sergeants Benevolent Association.

Defense lawyer Michael Horn described her in court as a “kind and generous young lady” and a Black Lives Matter activist” who’s “enrolled full time at Queens College, working on a Bachelor of Science degree.

On Thursday, NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan — who was also injured on the bridge — described two other activists busted Wednesday as “part of this anarchist group that has been infiltrating this Black Lives movement since the beginning.

“It is a legitimate movement, but it is being hijacked by these anarchists, and they are the ones that have been attacking our police officers [and] are out hiding behind the many, many peaceful protesters that are out there,” Monahan told Fox 5’s “Good Day New York.”
