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

Layman is accused of pouring red wine on his paintings, ripping them off the wall, and throwing sculptures on the ground.

Police arrested Lindy Lou Layman, 29, of Dallas, on December 23 at the Houston home of Tony Buzbee, who cemented his reputation as one of Texas' most prominent trial lawyers by winning a $100 million federal jury verdict against BP in 2009 over chemical discharges.

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

She is accused of yelling obscenities while tearing down two original Andy Warhol paintings, estimated at $500,000 each, from the wall of the attorney's home.

Layman was released from jail on $30,000 bond, according to court records. She also allegedly poured an unspecified liquid on top of the paintings.

Study says more pregnant women using marijuana
Robyn Horsager-Boehrer, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas, who was not involved in the study. However, there is insufficient data on link between marijuana use and fetal development.

Buzbee believed she was too intoxicated and called an Uber driver to pick her up. Per the information read in court, Layman was aggressive toward the second Uber driver, walked back into Buzbee's home and shouted, "I'm not leaving".

In court, prosecutors said Layman was on a first date with Buzbee, according to KHOU-TV.

The sketches evidently incorporate an Andy Warhol unique. Later, when he tried calling a second Uber, she cursed at him and did the damage to the artwork, KHOU reported.

The 29-year-old also reportedly smashed two sculptures inside the mansion, according to Harris County court documents obtained by KHOU.

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.
