A woman is accused of completely losing her cool at the mansion of a well-known Houston attorney, and destroying hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of art work.

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 said Buzbee told police he called an Uber to come get Layman at his house because she got too drunk during their first date, Houston's CBS affiliate KHOU reported. As indicated by court archives, the subsequent harm cost at any rate $300,000.

The damaged artworks reportedly included two original Andy Warhol paintings valued at $500,000 each. She allegedly refused to leave and hid in his home. Layman is accused of pouring wine onto three paintings and tearing others off the wall.

According to a criminal complaint, damages were estimated to be circa $300k.

A Texas woman has been charged with criminal mischief after reportedly going on a drunken rampage during a first date.

After charges were read against Lindy Lu Layman, the 29-year-old didn't say much as details of her arrest were revealed at her probable cause hearing. KHOU reports Layman is a court reporter.

Buzbee is known for successfully defending former Texas Governor Rick Perry in an abuse-of-power case, according to the Houston Chronicle. The Dallas Morning News reportsthat in 2016, Buzbee hosted a fundraiser for Donald Trump at the mansion where Saturday's incident occurred, and donated $250,000 to Trump's presidential campaign. He made headlines the same year for parking a tank outside of his home, causing a brief fight with his homeowner's association.
