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

Lindy Lou Layman was arrested on December 23 on criminal mischief charges after allegedly damaging several painting and sculptures in Anthony Buzbee's River Oaks home. Buzbee thought Layman was too intoxicated and called an Uber driver, according to court details reported by KTRK.

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

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.

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

Authorities say she tore down several paintings and poured red wine on some, and she threw two $20,000 sculptures. As indicated by court archives, the subsequent harm cost at any rate $300,000.

Layman was arrested and released from jail after posting a $30,000 bond on December 24 and is set to face her first court appearance on Thursday. Most leave when you ask them.

Buzbee and Layman were reportedly on their first date when the mayhem began. "She also pulled a Renoir and a Monet off the wall".

Layman later stated in court she is from Dallas and has been a court reporter for nine years. "Luckily those weren't damaged", Buzbee added.

A former U.S. Marine who served in the Persian Gulf War, Buzbee made news this year when he bought an M4 Sherman tank that landed on the beach in Normandy with the U.S. Armed Forces during WWII.
