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

Const. David Hopkinson says the woman turned herself in this morning and will appear in court later in the day.

After the video went viral, police asked the woman in the footage to surrender. The video shows her standing next to police inside the building through a window, wearing heavy makeup with her hair exposed.

A widely viewed video shot from the apartment balcony shows a woman throwing one of the chairs, which plummets to the street below.

Global News reports that the throwing took place on February 9 at around 10 a.m.in the area of Harbour and York Streets, along Bremner Boulevard.

Police made an appeal to the public on Tuesday, asking for the woman to surrender. Or are they fair seeing as no one was injured in this incident.

A suspect was identified Wednesday as 19-year-old Toronto resident Marcella Zoia.

The nine-second video started circulating online over the weekend.

The Toronto police have thanked the public for their assistance identifying the woman. "We want to give her the opportunity to speak to her lawyer and then come in on her own volition", Hopkinson told the CBC.

Marcella Zoia, of Toronto, faces charges in the disturbing incident that was captured on video and posted to social media, drawing outrage from across the city.

"This is the best option for all so she, like everyone else offered this option, was given some leeway".

Neighbours have said the unit was used as a short-term rental. "We are investigating whether any Airbnb guests were involved and we will be suspending any guest's accounts that appear to be connected to this incident".
