According to the Miami Herald, Crenshaw is a popular fixture in South Beach, where he is known for painting canvas using his feet on the Lincoln Road Mall.

Jonathan Crenshaw, 46, was taken into custody after officers from the Miami Beach Police Department discovered his alleged victim, Cesar Coronado, lying on the beach bleeding from his left arm on Tuesday. Police say Crenshaw stabbed Coronado twice and fled.

But Tuesday, the 46-year-old transient artist was arrested and accused of stabbing a Miami tourist with a pair of scissors.

A friend of Coronado's, however, said the two asked Crenshaw for directions when he suddenly stabbed Coronado in the arm.

According to the arrest report, Crenshaw says he was lying down when Coronado, a Chicago tourist, approached him and punched him in the head. After stabbing him, he says he placed the scissors in his waistband and walked away from the scene.
