Crenshaw allegedly said he used his feet to grab a pair of scissors from his suitcase and stabbed Coronado twice.

According to the Miami Herald, the homeless man is a fixture in the South Beach area, known for painting with his feet.

In a weird incident, a 46-year-old homeless was arrested for stabbing a tourist with a pair of scissors using his feet.

He told officers that the stabbing was in self defense, after Coronado came up to him when he was lying down and punched him in the head, police said.

Mr Coronado told investigators he had stopped to ask Crenshaw for directions before he jumped up and stabbed him. He then stuck the scissors in his waistband and walked away quickly, according to the police report. Born in Alabama, Crenshaw says his mother fed him rat poison in an effort to obtain health insurance.

Crenshaw is being held at Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center on $7,500 bail.
