‘Buckwild’ cast member arrested

  • February 11, 2013

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – A cast member of the MTV reality show “Buckwild” is facing a drug charge in West Virginia.

Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver.

Details of Amin’s arrest and the charge weren’t immediately available. She is being held at Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond.

Jail Administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesn’t want to talk to the media. He didn’t know whether she had a lawyer.

MTV announced last week that the show will be picked up for a second season. MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network doesn’t have any comment at this time on Amin’s arrest.

“Buckwild” was filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston.
