Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Georgia

My wife and I got into an altercation while in route to her friends condo to pick her car up from when she was visiting the day prior. As we arrived our disagreement continued and as a result, a flower pot was broken. The HOA sent us a bill for $1000 and I did not pay the bill as it was believed to be excessive.

The HOA has now turned their attention to my wifes friend and demanding that she pay the $1000 in ten days or they would evict her. Is this eviction legal or is this another attempt to collect.?

Either way, it appears you and your wife have made the decision to put your "friend" in this position by not paying for the damage you caused. It seems there is one easy solution.
