Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, allegedly knifed the man on Miami's South Beach Tuesday, with his victim claiming the attack happened after a visitor from Chicago asked for directions.
The New Times reports that Crenshaw's most recent conviction was in 2014, when he was sentenced to 180 days in jail for felony battery on a police officer.
A MAN previously thought to be harmless - as he was a disabled artist who sold his canvases in Miami's touristy South Beach, has been charged with stabbing a Chicago tourist.
According to the arrest report, Crenshaw says he was lying down when Coronado approached him and punched him in the head. Crenshaw told police that he was defending himself when he was apprehended. He then tucked the scissors in his waistband and walked away.
Crenshaw is well-known for selling paintings drawn with his feet to tourists on Miami's Lincoln Road mall.
The publication has profiled Crenshaw in the past and found he has had multiple run-ins with police and other officials, including violent crime charges.
"Why would I go and attack someone else?" It's like, how the hell did I get stabbed? Paramedics transported him to the Mount Sinai Medical Center for treatment.
