Two Warhols Damaged During Bad First Date

Lindy Lou Layman

A Texas woman was arrested late Saturday after allegedly causing damage to several pricey works of art at a Houston attorney's home, reports CBS affiliate KHOU.

Lindy Lou Layman, 29, is accused of damaging three paintings and two sculptures at the home of prominent attorney Anthony Buzbee.

KHOU-TV reported Layman was on a first date with Buzbee, with the lawyer at one point having called Layman an Uber after she became intoxicated. When she was first arrested, the damage was estimated at $300,000, but later a report has that number at about $1.5 million. "She then allegedly threw two sculptures, valued at $20,000 each, according to charging documents".

A felony criminal mischief conviction for causing more than $200,000 in damages in Texas reportedly carries a possible punishment of five to 99 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. That's when Buzbee called a second Uber driver.

Prosecutors say Buzbee told investigators that Layman, a freelance court reporter by trade, got too drunk on their date, so he called her an Uber after they returned to his $9million mansion in River Oaks.

He successfully defended former Texas Gov. Rick Perry in an abuse of power case and -for the party highlights- just hosted a holiday extravaganza this year for his family and friends with special celebrity guest Snoop Dogg.

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

Buzbee recently made headlines for parking a tank outside his mansion, sparking a fight with his homeowners' association and, according to Buzbee's Facebook, a rash of tickets.

Buzbee also has ties to the current president, once hosting a fundraiser for Donald Trump in 2016.
