A homeless Florida artist was charged Tuesday with using his feet to stab a Chicago man with a pair of scisorrs, authorities said.
Jonathan Dale Crenshaw, 46, was arrested Tuesday in the 200 block of Lincoln Road. He was charged with aggravated battery.
According to a friend of the victim, the man was asking Crenshaw for directions in South Beach when Crenshaw suddenly stabbed him in the arm and fled on foot, the police report said.
Cesar Coronado, who is visiting from Chicago, said his vacation began with a trip to the hospital.
"I'm not from here and this is not what I came for. I came for a vacation," Coronado told NBC 6 Wednesday. "I just said 'do you know where this is?' but as soon as I talked, the only thing he reacted was he just cut me."
Officers responded to the scene and found Crenshaw nearby. Crenshaw said he was lying down when a man came up and punched him in the head, so he pulled the scissors out of a suitcase with his feet and stabbed the man twice to defend himself, the report said.
"Why would I go and attack someone else? No, no, I wouldn't do that," Coronado said. "Its like how the hell did I get stabbed? Like, is it the right guy at that point? Because I cant believe with his legs someone could do that."
Crenshaw said he put the scissors in his waistband and walked off quickly, the report said. He was booked into jail where he remained held on $7,500 bond Wednesday, records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
Crenshaw was profiled in 2011 by the Miami New Times, which showed him using his feet to draw and paint.
I’ll just ask the obvious, how did the police cuff him?
Well, he would, wouldn't he?
Gotta hand it to him...
He was disarmed but still very dangerous...
Chicagoans can’t get a break. Get shot at home, or get stabbed by an armless guy in Florida.
The game is afoot.
I’m still trying to figure out how he put the scissors in his waistband, flexible guy I guess.
What sort of a heel would do that?
The Black Knight?
I think he pt his foot in his mouth by talking to the police.
Chicago obviously needs to enact stricter scissors-control legislation.
he still has the right bear...uh never mind
Hes been caught No Handed !
Hey, I had a grandfather with a wooden leg from the knee up. And his father had two wooden legs, and they caught fire, and he burned to the ground.
Foot loose and fancy free or something...
That trick of putting the scissors in his waistband was some fancy foot work...
Oops. RTFA. Florida. Just assumed it was Chicago.
From the knee UP????????????????
I thought Mike Ehrmantraut was killed in Breaking Bad, apparently he was only wounded.
Ah, Edward Scissorfeet.
Wasn’t that a movie?
