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

Lindy Lou Layman accused of destroying three paintings and two sculptures belonging to Houston attorney Tony Buzbee and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage appeared in court.

The Morning News reported that Layman was intoxicated and, when Buzbee called an Uber for her, she allegedly hid in his home and refused to leave, then attacked the artwork, which included two original Andy Warhol paintings valued at $500,000 each.

Prosecutors said Buzbee told police he called an Uber to come get Layman at his house because she got too drunk during their first date, Houston's CBS affiliate KHOU reported. The resulting damage cost at least $300,000.

"Lindy Lou Layman "intentionally and knowingly" damaged multiple pieces of artwork" by Andy Warhol on December 23, said the New York Daily News.

Layman is accused of pouring red wine on his paintings, ripping them off the wall, and throwing sculptures on the ground. "That's when Buzbee called a second Uber driver".

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

Layman was taken to Harris County jail where she was then released after posting a bond of $30,000.

Layman said at her probable cause hearing that she has been a court reporter for nine years, KHOU reported. He also hosted a fundraiser for then-candidate Donald Trump at the mansion past year.

Buzbee is known for leading the defense in an abuse of power case against former Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

But he is said to have "completely" done with the candidacy after video surfaced of Trump bragging about grabbing women by the p***y.

Buzbee also made headlines previous year for parking a tank outside of his home, causing a brief fight with his homeowner's association.
