A woman decided to destroy a lawyer’s expensive art collection during their first date after she was told to leave his home, according to police in Texas.
Houston police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Lindy Lou Layman after being accused of pouring red wine on paintings that were worth $1 million.
Layman has been charged with one count of criminal mischief.
If convicted, she faces up to life in prison.
Layman was booked into the Harris County Jail and her bail has been set at $30,000.
A judge has ordered Layman to stay away from attorney Tony Buzbee and refrain from using drugs or alcohol.
According to the police investigation, Layman and Buzbee were on their first date when she became very intoxicated.
At some point, Buzbee decided that he no longer wanted Layman at his home so he called an Uber to take the woman home.
Layman refused to leave and began yelling, cursing, and throwing objects.
The woman then shattered two sculptures worth $20,000 each.
She then poured red wine on paintings, including two from artist Andy Warhol, which were valued at $1 million.
Layman denied all the allegations.
