Accordign to court documents, Anthony Buzbee claimed a Dallas woman he brought home after their first date drunkenly destroyed his abstract sculptures and three paintings - including two by the famed artist Andy Warhol - after Buzbee tried to send her home in an Uber. Layman did about $300,000 in damage, according to KTRK.
The damaged artworks reportedly included two original Andy Warhol paintings valued at $500,000 each. She tore the paintings off the wall, poured liquid on them and threw sculptures across the room, the complaint said.
Buzbee told police he called Layman an Uber after she became intoxicated, the news station reported, after which she refused to leave and hid inside the home.
The punishment for a felony criminal mischief conviction in Texas depends on the amount of damage the defendant caused.
KPRC reported that, during a probable cause hearing, a judge said Buzbee thought Layman was "too intoxicated" and decided he wanted her to leave.
