A 19-year-old woman who allegedly tossed a chair off the balcony of a downtown Toronto highrise turned herself in to police to face multiple charges on Wednesday, after video of the incident circulated widely online.
As part of their investigation, police are looking into whether the condo unit was being used as a short-term rental property at the time the video was taken.
In the video, which was originally posted to Snapchat, the woman can be seen gleefully tossing a chair from a high-rise balcony onto the highway below.
In a news release issued Monday, investigators noted that other items were thrown off of the balcony as well.
No injuries were reported in the incident which is believed to have happened at 10 a.m. on Saturday, with the chair landing next to a bike rack at the front entrance of the condo building.
It does not appear that any vehicles were damaged or that anyone was injured by the falling objects.
