UPDATE: 'Buckwild' cast member Amin arrested in W.Va.

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 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.
