Lindy Lou Layman was arrested on December 23 on criminal mischief charges after allegedly damaging several painting and sculptures in Anthony Buzbee's River Oaks home.

During the probable cause hearing, the judge said, "The complainant informed officers that had the defendant went out on the first date".

Prosecutors say Buzbee, 49, told investigators that Layman got too intoxicated on their date, so he called her an Uber after they returned to his home.

During court proceedings, court officials said, "She refused to leave the location, hid somewhere in his home". Later, when he tried calling a second Uber, she cursed at him and did the damage to the artwork, KHOU reported. Layman is accused of pouring wine onto three paintings and tearing others off the wall.

A high-profile Texas attorney alleges that a woman destroyed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art in his house, including two original Andy Warhol paintings, after getting drunk on a first date. According to KHOU, prosecutors said two of the paintings were original Warhols valued at $500,000 apiece.
