"We'll see how this works, but that's a long way down the road", Leslie said.
Video footage showing a woman picking up the chair and throwing it off the balcony onto the Gardiner Expressway was posted to Snapchat and Instagram over the weekend before spreading to other social media websites. "Of course she would never wish that anybody be hurt", her lawyer, Gregory Leslie, said.
She is now facing three charges: mischief endangering life, mischief damaging property under $5,000 and common nuisance.
The chairs landed near the front entrance of the towering condo.
"Her or her representative arranged for her to surrender", said Toronto Police spokesperson David Hopkinson in an email to Daily Hive.
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. She was released on $2,000 bail and ordered to live with her mother.
"This was not just something that was sort of a lark gone bad", he said. He said he'll have discussions with the prosecution and said it might not go to trial but said he'll see how it develops.
Toronto Mayor John Tory said the video shows "grossly irresponsible behaviour".
Police said they are in the process of interviewing the woman and no charges have yet been laid.
Police said the apartment the furniture was allegedly tossed from was being used as a "short-term rental property" but could not say which company it was rented through. "I hope they would've concluded that earlier on".
In a statement released late Tuesday, Airbnb said it would look into whether any of its users were involved in the incident.
