According to this BBC article, Caravaggio -- the Italian artist whose work had a formative influence on the Baroque school of painting -- was a touchy, arrogant man who carried daggers and a pistol and had a police record "more shocking than any modern bad boy rock star's."
The picture the [police records] paint is that of an irascible man who went about town carrying personal weapons -- a sword and dagger, and even a pistol -- without a written permit, boasting that he enjoyed the protection of the ecclesiastical authorities who commissioned some of his most famous works.
He had frequent brushes with the police, got into trouble for throwing a plate of cooked artichokes in the face of a waiter in a tavern, and made a hole in the ceiling of his rented studio, so that his huge paintings would fit inside. His landlady sued, so he and a friend pelted her window with stones.
