By CHRIS HUNTER | Salina Journal

A 23-year-old Emporia man was booked into Saline County Jail on Saturday after being arrested in Gypsum.

Adam Yancey was arrested by Saline County Sheriff deputies at about 9:30 a.m. in the 400 block of East Second Street in Gypsum after allegedly stabbing Daniel S. Meadows, 27, of Gypsum.

Yancey is being charged with attempted first-degree murder, carrying a cutting instrument as a concealed weapon, battery, unlawful restraint, criminal threat, criminal damage and aggravated assault.

Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski said more information would be released this week. Yancey was arrested in January and May of 2005 on drug possession in Lyon and Coffey counties.

In 2009, Yancey also was arrested for attempting to elude law enforcement officers, evading a roadblock, reckless driving, committing five motor vehicle violations and battery of a law enforcement officer in Lyon County. He was under intensive supervision of the 5th Judicial District at the time of his arrest.
