Woman seen on video tossing chair from Toronto condo surrenders to police

Police have identified the suspect in a chair-tossing video as a 19-year-old Toronto woman after she turned herself in on Wednesday.

Police said Zoia threw two chairs and other items off the balcony and was charged with endangering life, mischief endangering property, and common nuisance in court Wednesday.

Even if it was a random act, the woman could still be charged with mischief endangering life, Hopkinson said.

Police on Tuesday had said they knew her identity and were urging her to contact a lawyer and police.

A video of a Toronto woman throwing a chair onto the Gardiner expressway made the rounds this weekend, prompting outrage and confusion to everyone that saw it. "I hope they would've concluded that earlier on". "They will give her an opportunity to tell her side of the story and then they'll decide on what charges are warranted", Const. David Hopkinson told CityNews.

A flurry of emails, calls, and other information came through shortly after the video was published, helping police determine who the woman was.

"This was not just something that was sort of a lark gone bad", he said. This is irresponsible behavior that is unacceptable, ' Toronto mayor, John Tory said. While the video ends before the chair hits the ground, police said the chair was found damaged "almost beyond recognition" at the entrance of a nearby building. "It was grossly irresponsible behaviour that could have caused serious injury and death".

Contacted for a statement, Airbnb said it was looking into whether any Airbnb guests were involved.

'It's the best for everyone This being a case where no one was injured, we didn't have any public safety concerns.
