Lindy Lou Layman is accused of criminal mischief after allegedly destroying two Warhol paintings.

According to KTRK, Buzbee and Lindy Layman, 29, were on a date, during which she became very drunk, and the pair returned to Buzbee's home before he called for an Uber to come pick her up.

During court proceedings, court officials said, "She refused to leave the location, hid somewhere in his home". So, he called a second Uber driver, and Layman showed aggression toward that driver.

Buzbee, you might recall, is the same Texas A&M regent who called for former Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin's firing after Texas A&M blew a huge lead to UCLA in its first game of this season.

According to the criminal complaint filed against Layman on December 23, Layman allegedly "tore paintings off the wall with her hands" and threw the sculptures across the room. That didn't work either: Layman acted aggressively toward the driver, prosecutors said, and then went back into the attorney's home, yelling: "I'm not leaving", according to KTRK. When she was first arrested, the damage was estimated at $300,000, but later a report has that number at about $1.5 million.

The suspect allegedly tore down two original Andy Warhol paintings each worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, the news station reported. 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.

Layman, a Dallas court reporter, was arrested and released on $30,000 bond.
