Woman who threw chair from high-rise balcony surrenders to police

Marcella Zoia

The woman allegedly threw items off the balcony, including two chairs, from around the 45th floor of a highrise on Bremner Boulevard.

The chairs reportedly landed near the building's front entrance and there were no reports of injuries.

No one was injured as a result.

"She's going to be in court this morning", he said, according to Global News.

Leslie said the police are continuing their investigation into the incident.

She appeared in a Toronto courtroom in the afternoon where she was granted bail, set at $2,000, and released.

Zoia was also prohibited from contacting the other four people on the balcony or from possessing any weapons, ammunition, explosives or intimidating device.

He added the media put her under a microscope for three days, saying she's embarrassed and has endured a "traumatic experience".

"She wished it never happened. Of course, she would never wish anyone would be hurt", said Greg Leslie, her lawyer.

"It was not just a lark gone bad". He said he'll have discussions with the prosecution and said it might not go to trial but said he'll see how it develops.

On Tuesday, police reached out to the public to ask for the woman to surrender.

Toronto police spokesperson David Hopkinson said on Monday he was "outraged" at the incident.

Neighbours told CTV News Toronto that they believed it was being operated as one that day.

Airbnb responded in a statement. "We will be suspending any guest's accounts that appear to be connected to this incident". "This is irresponsible behaviour that is unacceptable", Toronto Mayor John Tory said. "It was grossly irresponsible behavior that could have caused serious injury and death", he added.
