  • Woman accused of causing $300K in damage to artwork in Texas lawyer's home

Layman's LinkedIn profile says she has worked as a freelance court reporter.

Layman was arrested a little after midnight on Saturday and charged with a felony count of criminal mischief.

The suspect allegedly tore down two original Andy Warhol paintings each worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, the news station reported.

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. That is when Buzbee called a moment Uber driver. He called a second Uber driver, and she reportedly went out to yell at the driver before coming back into Buzbee's home and refusing to leave. She also allegedly poured an unspecified liquid on top of the paintings.

"Lindy Lou Layman "intentionally and knowingly" damaged multiple pieces of artwork" by Andy Warhol on December 23, said the New York Daily News.

Layman was released from jail on $30,000 bond, according to court records.

Buzbee told police that Layman refused to leave and hid in his 11,000-square foot home, which the Harris County appraisal district values at more than $9.4 million, that reportedly has five fireplaces and limestone floors.

Layman is now remanded to appear in court on Thursday.

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. He also hosted a fundraiser for then-candidate Donald Trump at the mansion a year ago. Buzbee also recently made headlines for parking a World War II tank in his River Oaks neighborhood.
