'BUCKWILD' cast member Amin arrested in W.Va.

CHARLESTON — A cast member of the MTV reality show "BUCKWILD" is facing a drug charge in West Virginia.

Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin is being held at the Central Regional Jail in Flatwoods on a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver.

Records show Amin was booked into the jail at 12:50 a.m. Monday. Details of her arrest and the charge weren't immediately available.

Sgt. Rick Drake with the jail 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. A spokesman and a spokeswoman for MTV didn't immediately return telephone messages Monday.

"BUCKWILD" was filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston.
