17 year old  Francine Reinke has been arrested after stabbing a man  several times in the leg and arm with a kitchen knife. The victim was treated at the scene.

While being taken into custody Reinke kicked an officer in the groin.  She’s being held in the Lincoln County Jail and faces a charge of attempted homicide, substantial battery, battery to a law enforcement officer, resisting and recklessly endangering safety.
