so i was reading bout mr. johnston and it said:

"During a tour with Sonic Youth, Daniel was arrested for scrawling the Jesus Fish across the inside of The Statue of Liberty. As he finished painting the inside, Daniel was seen wandering the streets of New York City. Eventually, after spending hours driving around the city, he was located by the members of Sonic Youth. "

anybody know anything more about this? i bet it's a hilarious story.

The whole story is pretty troubling. Watch The Devil And Daniel Johnston to get the full scoop on this.

That article is all wrong though. He wasn't touring with SY, he was in New York to record with Mo Tucker, among others, and to play a few shows, which Steve set up. They took him around NY to see the sights, which is how he came to be arrested/fined for drawing all those fish on the stairwell of the statue of liberty. As his mental problems grew more and more worrying, Daniel disappeared. Steve was freaked out. Eventually Lee and Thurston found him after driving around for hours, and they put him on a bus home to his parents house. Of course, Daniel got off the bus at the wrong stop and was arrested for some other crime which had something to do with chasing an old woman out of a second-floor window because of demons.

I think the story about him purposefully crashing the plane he and his father were in is a bit scarier.

In 1993, Johnston painted a mural of the "Hi, How Are You?" frog, also known as Jeremiah the Innocent after the Three Dog Night song, on the side of Sound Exchange in Austin, Texas:
