Woman accused of damaging $300K worth of art belonging to Houston attorney appears in court

Lindy Lou Layman, 29, appeared before a judge on a charge of criminal mischief.

The woman allegedly refused to leave and hid inside the home.

Prosecutors said in court Wednesday that Lindy Lou Layman, a 29-year-old Dallas court reporter, was on the date with attorney Anthony Buzbee on December 23 when she allegedly went on her destructive spree, according to KHOU. Buzbee believed she was too intoxicated and called an Uber driver to pick her up. She then went back into his home and proceeded to allegedly pour red wine on his expensive paintings, rip them off the wall and throw his sculptures on the ground.

Accordign to court documents, Anthony Buzbee claimed a Dallas woman he brought home after their first date drunkenly destroyed his abstract sculptures and three paintings - including two by the famed artist Andy Warhol - after Buzbee tried to send her home in an Uber. According to KHOU, prosecutors said two of the paintings were original Warhols valued at $500,000 apiece.

Per the data read in court, Layman was forceful toward the second Uber driver, strolled again into Buzbee's home and yelled, "I'm not clearing out".

Layman was charged with criminal mischief and later posted $30,000 bond. The resulting damage cost at least $300,000.

Buzbee has represented high-profile figures, including former Texas Gov. Rick Perry in an abuse-of-power case. The Dallas Morning News reportsthat in 2016, Buzbee hosted a fundraiser for Donald Trump at the mansion where Saturday's incident occurred, and donated $250,000 to Trump's presidential campaign.
