According to the Toronto Police, 19-year-old Marcella Zoia of Toronto will be charged with mischief endangering life, mischief destroying or damaging property under $5,000, and common nuisance.

The woman wanted for a Mischief - Endanger Life investigation after throwing a chair from a downtown condo balcony surrendered to authorities this morning.

Police said Tuesday they identified the woman but did not publicly name her. Mayor John Tory told the media that the suspect's actions demonstrated "idiotic behavior". Video of the incident sparked widespread outrage. He added, "This could have caused death or injury and is not acceptable". The blonde haired suspect was clad in a leather jacket, black trousers and high heels as she tossed the chair off of the 45th-floor balcony towards the passing traffic below.

On Monday, Const. David Hopkinson, spokesperson for the Toronto police, said he obtained a copy of the video on Sunday and police began to investigate the next day. 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. A photo of the mangled chair has been posted online.

Police believe the chair-throwing incident occurred Saturday around 10 a.m. ET at a condo in the Harbour and York streets area, which overlooks the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard.

The video was captioned with "Good Morning". Police said two chairs were thrown from the balcony including other objects.

Earlier reports suggested the woman was staying in an Airbnb rental in the building.
