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

Posted December 29, 2017

Lindy Lou Layman, 29, was arrested on Christmas Eve on charges of criminal mischief after her disastrous rendezvous with Anthony Buzbee. When she was first arrested, the damage was estimated at $300,000, but later a report has that number at about $1.5 million.

"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 liquid onto paintings, tearing paintings off the wall and throwing sculptures across the room, according to Harris County court documents. "He states when he found her, he told her he would call a second Uber driver which he did".

During court proceedings, court officials said, "She refused to leave the location, hid somewhere in his home". She was released on $30,000 bond.

The punishment for a felony criminal mischief conviction in Texas depends on the amount of damage the defendant caused.

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. KHOU reports Layman is a court reporter. He also hosted a fundraiser for then-candidate Donald Trump at the mansion a year ago.

Buzbee is a prominent lawyer who drove the guard in previous Texas Governor Rick Perry's mishandle of-energy case, which was later expelled.

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

He claimed to plan to write in Dan Moran on his ballot in October 2016.

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.
