One resident of the building from which the chair was thrown said she was angry when she learned what happened.

Det. Todd Higo said Marcella Zoia turned herself and would appear in court later Wednesday.

Her lawyer said she was embarrassed and understands the public anger generated by the alleged incident.

Even if it was a random act, the woman could still be charged with mischief endangering life, Hopkinson said. She was released on $2,000 bail and ordered to live with her mother.

Zoia was also prohibited from contacting the other four people on the balcony or from possessing any weapons, ammunition, explosives or intimidating device.

She is also not to attend two addresses - one on Maple Leaf Square and the other on Bremner Boulevard.

"She wished it never happened".
