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

A woman is accused of destroying three paintings and two sculptures belonging to a Houston attorney and causing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage.

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.

Prosecutors say Layman was on a first date with attorney Anthony Buzbee late December 23. When she was first arrested, the damage was estimated at $300,000, but later a report has that number at about $1.5 million. Layman, a Dallas resident, was granted $30,000 bond after being charged with criminal mischief. She tore the paintings off the wall, poured liquid on them and threw sculptures across the room, the complaint said.

"She allegedly refused to leave and hid in his home", KTRK reports. "When they returned to his home, he believed she was too intoxicated and decided he wanted her to leave".

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

Eating Green Leafy Vegetables May Prevent Memory Decline
The study involved 960 people with an average age of 81 who did not have dementia and were followed for an average of 4.7 years. Those classed as eating the most green, leafy vegetables had between 1 and 2 servings each day.

Layman said in court this week that she has worked as a court reporter for nine years, KHOU reports. The sculptures, KHOU reported, were worth $20,000 each.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Buzbee's claim to fame includes once hosting President Donald Trump when he was just a nominee.

But he is said to have "completely" done with the candidacy after video surfaced of Trump bragging about grabbing women by the p***y.

Buzbee is a prominent lawyer who drove the guard in previous Texas Governor Rick Perry's mishandle of-energy case, which was later expelled.
