Toronto police say the woman in a viral video who threw a chair off a condo balcony has turned herself in.

She was by herself when she walked into a Toronto Police Department just after 7 a.m. Wednesday.

Strong peer pressure compelled a 19-year-old woman to hurl a chair over a highrise balcony down to Maple Leaf Square where it shattered, her lawyer said on Wednesday.

Police told CTV Toronto Tuesday that they had been in contact with "either the perpetrator herself or her representative" and were discussing arrangements for the woman to surrender.

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.

Hopkinson called the incident "very callous" and said the objects could have hurt somebody. This is irresponsible behavior that is unacceptable, ' Toronto mayor, John Tory said.

'I just hope that people take from the example the consequences that will befall this woman. "We'll see how this works, but that's a long way down the road", Leslie said.

"Constable David Hopkinson told the media after the suspect's arrest, "(She had) no regard for anybody that might be passing underneath". CTV News cites a law enforcement source saying that the chair was recovered close to the building's entrance and was damaged "almost beyond recognition".

"This was not just something that was sort of a lark gone bad", he said.
