Lindy Lou Layman "intentionally and knowingly" damaged multiple pieces of artwork belonging to Anthony Buzbee on December 23, according to Harris County court documents.
Her attorney, Natalie Ware with the Harris County Public Defender's Office, did not return a phone call Thursday seeking further details about her arrest and asking if she will plead guilty at her January 9 arraignment.
A Dallas woman is facing felony charges after police say she destroyed at least $300,000 worth of sculptures and original paintings - including two original Andy Warhol works - at the River Oaks home of well-known Houston trial lawyer Anthony Buzbee.
Layman is charged with criminal mischief after prosecutors say she destroyed pricey paintings and sculptures following a date with high-profile attorney Tony Buzbee Saturday night. 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.
Mild week ahead but winter returns this weekend
Mostly clear skies will hang around tonight , with the southwest wind up to 7 miles per hour remaining in place as well. It now appears that it the main storm system will stay north of us and will not bring us any rain, ice, or snow.
Buzbee trusted she was excessively inebriated and called a Uber driver to lift her up.
"She also pulled a Renoir and a Monet off the wall", Buzbee told Texas Lawyer. He said she refused to leave his home, at one point hiding in his house, and then became aggressive. Most leave when you ask them.
"I collect art. I don't want it damaged", Buzbee said.
Layman later stated in court she is from Dallas and has been a court reporter for nine years. Her next court appearance is set for Thursday. Then-candidate Donald Trump also visited his home previous year when Buzbee held a fundraiser and donated $250,000 to Trump's presidential campaign.
