Woman accused of ruining $300K of artwork while drunk on 1st date

Screen Shot Woman Allegedly Destroys $300000 Of Artwork At Pro-Trump Attorney's Home

The suspect allegedly tore down two original Andy Warhol paintings each worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, the news station reported.

Buzbee says the two returned to his home, but Layman turned out to be too drunk to continue their date, prompting his call for an Uber. "He states when he found her, he told her he would call a second over driver which he did".

Lindy Lou Layman, 29, has been charged with criminal mischief in Houston, Texas, after prosecutors say her first date with Anthony Buzbee, a prominent Texas attorney and collector of art, took a turn for the destructive on December 23, KTRK reports.

Layman was booked into the Harris County jail and released Monday after posting $30,000 bond.

As per points of interest that turned out in court, Layman and Buzbee were out on the town Saturday when she turned out to be vigorously inebriated and they came back to his home.

Court records show that she was charged with felony criminal mischief after allegedly tearing three paintings off the wall, pouring an unidentified liquid on them, and destroying two abstract sculptures by "throwing them across the room".

In court, prosecutors said Layman was on a first date with Buzbee, according to KHOU-TV. The paintings apparently include an Andy Warhol original. But when Buzzbee called his date an Uber to take her home, she hid in his house and wouldn't leave, KHOU reports. The sculptures, KHOU reported, were worth $20,000 each. Buzbee is a high-profile attorney who led the defense in former Texas Governor Rick Perry's abuse-of-power case, which was later dismissed.

Buzbee hosted a fundraiser for presidential candidate Donald Trump at the home in 2016, the Chronicle reports.
