Police said they were called out to an incident on the 1500 block of Sunset Boulevard on January 14, just after 8 a.m.
When officers arrived, they found Law inside the synagogue where witnesses said Law caused damage to the property.
According to court documents, Law spilled red wine and stained a Torah religious scroll and religious robe, as well as a double pane glass window where a complainant stated Law made entry into the synagogue.
Police said Law was later arrested and charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief for her role in the incident. However, one week later, the charge was upgraded to felony criminal mischief and a warrant was issued for Law.
Law was arrested the next day without incident by Harris County Constable Precinct 5 deputies at a synagogue on West Airport.
