A Dallas woman is facing felony charges after police say she destroyed at least $300,000 worth of sculptures and original paintings - including two original Andy Warhol works - at the River Oaks home of well-known Houston trial lawyer Anthony Buzbee.
Lindy Lou Layman was arrested on December 23 on criminal mischief charges after allegedly damaging several painting and sculptures in Anthony Buzbee's River Oaks home.
Lindy Lou Layman "intentionally and knowingly" damaged multiple pieces of artwork belonging to Anthony Buzbee on December 23, according to Harris County court documents.
"Lindy Lou Layman "intentionally and knowingly" damaged multiple pieces of artwork" by Andy Warhol on December 23, said the New York Daily News.
A Texas woman has been charged with criminal mischief after reportedly going on a drunken rampage during a first date. Later, when he tried calling a second Uber, she cursed at him and did the damage to the artwork, KHOU reported.
According to a criminal complaint, Layman "tore paintings off the wall with her hands" and threw abstract sculptures across the room. Matters are said to have 'devolved' after Layman refused to leave, with the woman instead hiding inside the attorney's home.
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.
Buzbee is known for leading the defense in an abuse of power case against former Texas Gov. Rick Perry. He made headlines the same year for parking a tank outside of his home, causing a brief fight with his homeowner's association.
Tony Buzbee hosted a fundraiser for Donald Trump past year.
