Date horror story: Woman rips pricey Andy Warhol artwork from walls

Date horror story: Woman rips pricey Andy Warhol artwork from walls

Lindy Lou Layman accused of destroying three paintings and two sculptures belonging to Houston attorney Tony Buzbee and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage appeared in court.

KHOU reported: "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".

Prosecutors say Layman was on a first date with attorney Anthony Buzbee late December 23. As indicated by court archives, the subsequent harm cost at any rate $300,000.

Layman was taken to Harris County jail where she was then released after posting a bond of $30,000. She tore the paintings off the wall and poured liquid on them, and threw the sculptures across a room in Buzbee's home, the court documents reveal.

During their date, when the pair returned to Buzbee's palatial home, Layman seemed too intoxicated, Buzbee told police.

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

The newspaper reports Buzbee later disavowed the then-candidate after the behind-the-scenes Access Hollywood tape surfaced in which Trump could be heard talking about kissing and groping women.

Layman said in court this week that she has worked as a court reporter for nine years, KHOU reports.

Buzbee is known for successfully defending former Texas Governor Rick Perry in an abuse-of-power case, according to the Houston Chronicle.

He claimed to plan to write in Dan Moran on his ballot in October 2016. He made headlines the same year for parking a tank outside of his home, causing a brief fight with his homeowner's association.

It features six bedrooms and eight full bathrooms and covers 11,813 square feet.
