'Buckwild' Star Salwa Amin Arrested During Drug Raid in West Virginia


The 'Buckwild' cast member is being held by police on $200,000 bond for allegedly possessing a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Salwa Amin, one of the friends in "Buckwild" who enjoyed a crazy life in the rural area of West Virginia, landed in hot water. The MTV reality star was busted during a drug raid in the state and booked on drug charges including possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

According to TMZ, the police in Summersville got a tip that there would be a "shipment" delivered to a home in Nicholas County Sunday, February 10. The cops monitored the house and found suspicious activities as they suspected that visitors were only staying for very brief periods of time.

Amin, 24, was arrested along with two men, Shawn L. Booker and Jason D. Jones. They were found hiding in a shed in the backyard with three packages of heroine. She allegedly had a "quantity of Oxycodone" in her purse and Booker had a "large amount of money" on him.

Jones said Amin and Booker delivered the drugs to his house with intent to distribute. She's being held in Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond and scheduled to be arraigned on Monday. MTV "does not have any comment at this time" when asked about what they think about the arrest.

"Buckwild" itself has sparked the West Virginians' anger. Sen. Joe Manchin asked MTV to cancel it because it "plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia," but MTV didn't budge. "It's not our goal or intention to stereotype anyone when we're making a TV show," executive Colin Nash told USA Today.

"Our show is about this group of kids who happen to live in West Virginia, and I think that people who watch the show will become invested in these kids and their characters and their stories, and hopefully appreciate West Virginia as a backdrop."
