Case against woman who allegedly threw chair off Toronto high-rise balcony put over
TORONTO -- The case of a woman accused of throwing a chair off a downtown Toronto high-rise balcony has been put over to next month.
Marcella Zoia is charged with one count each of mischief endangering life, mischief endangering property under $5,000 and common nuisance in the February incident.
At that time, a video went viral showing a young woman launching a chair off a balcony over a busy Toronto highway.
The video drew a rebuke from the city's mayor and a plea from police to help identify the woman.
Zoia turned herself in a few days later.
Her lawyer said at the last court appearance that he believed the case was close to a resolution.
