A 19-year-old woman turned herself into police on Wednesday to face charges of allegedly throwing two chairs off a 45th story balcony along a busy downtown Toronto street.

Marcella Zoia, 19, surrendered herself to Toronto police on Wednesday, CBC News reported and is slated to appear in court in Toronto later Wednesday.

Jenna Periti, who has known Zoia from the time they attended St. Elizabeth Catholic High School, in Thornhill called her a smart girl and said the video "does not do her justice".

She turned herself in at a police station at around 7 a.m.

In the video, a woman tosses a chair off the balcony of a highrise building near Harbour and York streets.

This is not amusing, I hope she gets caught!????
