Woman Accused of Destroying $300K Worth of Art at Tony Buzbee's House

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.

Layman destroyed three original paintings and two abstract sculptures at Buzbee's 12,000-square-foot mansion that evening, according to a criminal complaint, leaving at least $300,000 in damage. 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. Buzbee said Layman refused to leave and hid inside the home, and that when he found her and called a second Uber, she got aggressive.

Two of the paintings were by Andy Warhol, KHOU reports.

Lindy Lou Layman was accused of causing $300k in damages to artwork on a boozy first date at a Houston attorney's home during which she allegedly flung sculptures across the room and tore pricey paintings off the wall, the Dallas Morning News reported.

"I collect art. I don't want it damaged", Buzbee said. She was released on $30,000 bond on Christmas Day. Most leave when you ask them.

Buzbee likewise as of late stood out as truly newsworthy for stopping a World War II tank in his River Oaks neighborhood. Her next court appearance is set for Thursday.

"I'm all about setting records, but I'm not sure this is one I should be proud of or not", Buzbee told the Chronicle in 2013.

Buzbee is a high-profile attorney who successfully defended former Texas Gov. Rick Perry in an abuse-of-power case.
