BLANCHARD, Oklahoma - Mayor Gregory Lynn Shupert faces a charge accusing him of domestic abuse in the presence of a child, according to McClain County Jail records.

Shupert, 50, was booked into the McClain County Jail at Purcell on Saturday, but no details were available on events that led up to the arrest.

There was no answer at a telephone number listed for Blanchard city government.

A jail spokesman said Shupert was released Saturday without bail.

Shupert could not be reached for comment Sunday, as no telephone number listed in his name could be found.
