She's a star in the MTV reality show Buckwild. But over the weekend, she became an inmate in a local jail.
Salwa Amin, 24, was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. She is being held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond.
State police say a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday night at a residence in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers found oxycodone pills and heroin at the residence.
Jail Administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesn't want to talk to the media.
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.

How sad. But you know what....these types of unfit programming is exactly what the masses screamed for and watched for years; reality tv shows rating shot up and thus a barrage of them appeared nightly on nearly every network. So complain all you want folks; this is what the majority wants. If people don't watch or don't go to the movies and pay to watch unfit movies/shows guess what? Hollywood and networks don't make money. When they don't make money; they are 'forced' to cancel them and start airing more fit programming that doesn't teach immorality, and ill-mannered corrupt junk to your children. So the blame is the sad state of affairs of the people in this entire 'country' not just WV. Until the people 'change' THIS is what we get to see constantly---and this is why we shut off our cable and satellite tv. No more trash in our home, period!

Also, I COMPLETELY AGREE with the person below who said, "they hoped, not another senseless marijuana arrest." With the SERIOUS DRUG PROBLEM that we have running rampid in this State. It's a joke, utilizing our resources to go after those with an, "HERB!" Quit wasting time & go after people like this. People w/ Heroin, Coke, Crack, Meth, Salt, & whatever other chemicals they are using these days. SMH!! So Sad!!

The worst thing ANY of those kids could've done is to have got into trouble. WV, as a whole, is not at all Happy w/ that show. So, clearly any chance the authorities or even people get they are going to CRUCIFY these kids. Come on a $200,000 Bond?? Do some research & you will see that they are making an example & putting it to this girl. There's been way worse things happen with much lower bonds. What does that tell people??

She's not even from WV, she's from Detroit. Take her off the show and send her back to Detroit.

No it wasn't a "senseless" pot charge, it was oxy and herion. This should make her mama proud! I know that as a fellow West Virginian, I am! (NOT) I am ashamed that my state is being depicted this way. It is a total embarassment. But then again this is not a child, this is a full grown woman! Again we are being made out to be the laughing stock! Just a state full of big ole dumb HILLBILLIES!
