Buzbee says the two returned to his home, but Layman turned out to be too drunk to continue their date, prompting his call for an Uber. The resulting damage cost at least $300,000.
Layman, who was identified as a freelance court reporter, was arrested on charges of criminal mischief and was released from Harris County Jail after posting $30,000 bail on Monday, CBS News reported.
Per the data read in court, Layman was forceful toward the second Uber driver, strolled again into Buzbee's home and yelled, "I'm not clearing out".
The suspect allegedly tore down two original Andy Warhol paintings each worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, the news station reported. That's when she allegedly poured red wine on his paintings and ripped them off the wall, then threw his sculptures on the ground.
The punishment for a felony criminal mischief conviction in Texas depends on the amount of damage the defendant caused. Matters are said to have 'devolved' after Layman refused to leave, with the woman instead hiding inside the attorney's home.
