Police arrested Lindy Lou Layman, 29, of Dallas, on December 23 at the Houston home of Tony Buzbee, who cemented his reputation as one of Texas' most prominent trial lawyers by winning a $100 million federal jury verdict against BP in 2009 over chemical discharges. "She then allegedly threw two sculptures, valued at $20,000 each, according to charging documents".

Lindy Lou Layman "intentionally and knowingly" damaged multiple pieces of artwork belonging to Anthony Buzbee on December 23, according to Harris County court documents.

The 29-year-old woman was visiting Anthony Buzbee, a high-profile attorney who has worked on several prominent trials, according to KHOU, when the Saturday incident reportedly occurred. She's also accused of throwing and shattering two sculptures. Later, when he tried calling a second Uber, she cursed at him and did the damage to the artwork, KHOU reported. 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. A LinkedIn page for Layman identifies her as a freelance court reporter.

That is the point at which she supposedly poured red wine on his depictions and scammed them the divider, at that point tossed his models on the ground.

Layman was arrested and released from jail after posting a $30,000 bond on December 24 and is set to face her first court appearance on Thursday.

Buzbee told police that Layman refused to leave and hid in his 11,000-square foot home, which the Harris County appraisal district values at more than $9.4 million, that reportedly has five fireplaces and limestone floors. Attendees paid between $5,400 and a quarter of a million dollars to come.
