Woman accused of tossing chair off of condo balcony released on bail

Woman accused of tossing chair off of condo balcony released on bail

The station says that the woman is facing charges of mischief-endangering life, mischief to property and common nuisance.

On February 13, it was widely reported that the suspect had turned herself in to authorities.

Zoia had made arrangements to turn herself in on Wednesday morning and is due to appear in court later that day. "Of course, she would never wish anybody would be hurt".

Zoia was released on a consent bail of $2,000 and was ordered to live with her mother Maria, a cleaner, at her Harding Ave. home.

A woman was arrested after she was filmed throwing chairs off the 45th floor of a tower onto a busy street below. She must also not have any contact with the four individuals that were with her at the time.

"We are outraged by the blatant disregard for community safety on display in the video", said spokesman Ben Breit. "We want to give her the opportunity to speak to her lawyer and then come in on her own volition", Hopkinson said, according to CBC News.

"It was not just a lark gone bad".

After the video went viral, police asked the woman in the footage to surrender.

"(She had) no regard for anybody that might be passing underneath", Const. David Hopkinson said, adding that the area is often filled with tourists and pedestrians.

Airbnb said Wednesday that it has contacted Toronto police and offered its support in the investigation.

Toronto Mayor John Tory condemned the alleged actions, saying they can't be tolerated. "We will be suspending any guest's accounts that appear to be connected to this incident". He added, "This could have caused death or injury and is not acceptable". "I hope they would've concluded that earlier on".
