Lindy Lou Layman, 29, has been charged with criminal mischief in Houston, Texas, after prosecutors say her first date with Anthony Buzbee, a prominent Texas attorney and collector of art, took a turn for the destructive on December 23, KTRK reports.

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.

Layman said in court this week that she has worked as a court reporter for nine years, KHOU reports. "She didn't", Buzbee told the Texas Lawyer, adding that Layman also grabbed some other rare artwork.

Layman destroyed three original paintings and two abstract sculptures, according to Texas authorities.

Layman reportedly refused to leave, and hid in Buzbee's home. "When they returned to his home, he believed she was too intoxicated and decided he wanted her to leave".

Layman is accused of pouring liquid onto paintings, tearing paintings off the wall and throwing sculptures across a room, according to Harris County court documents.

In court, prosecutors said Layman was on a first date with Buzbee, according to KHOU. Per the information read in court, Layman was aggressive toward the second Uber driver, walked back into Buzbee's home and shouted, "I'm not leaving".

Layman now faces felony charges, but she is currently released on a $30,000 bond.

"I collect art. I don't want it damaged", Buzbee said.

Prosecutors say Layman was on a first date with attorney Anthony Buzbee late December 23. "It's not the first time I've had guests at a party of mine over imbibe".

Buzbee also has ties to the current president, once hosting a fundraiser for Donald Trump in 2016.
