A woman was charged after she was accused of throwing a chair off the balcony of a high-rise in Toronto reports said

She was charged with mischief - endanger life, mischief - damage property under $5000 and common nuisance.

Police said on Tuesday they had identified the woman but did not release her name.

On Tuesday, police urged the woman to turn herself in, saying that they now knew her identity.

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. "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.

While no one was hurt, someone could very easily have been hit, said Hopkinson, calling throwing the chair "very callous" due to the apparent disregard. "This is irresponsible behaviour that is unacceptable", Toronto Mayor John Tory said.

Speaking after his client's bail hearing, lawyer Greg Leslie said the woman had a "momentary lapse in judgment" when she pitched a chair over the 55 Bremner Blvd. balcony.

"We will just take this through the proper course, through the right channels and we'll go from there".

Police said the apartment the furniture was allegedly tossed from was being used as a "short-term rental property" but could not say which company it was rented through.

The chairs reportedly landed near the building's front entrance and there were no reports of injuries. "It was grossly irresponsible behavior that could have caused serious injury and death", he added. "We are investigating whether any Airbnb guests were involved and we will be suspending any guest accounts that appear to be connected to this incident", said Ben Breit, who works for Airbnb in public affairs.
