‘Buckwild’ Star Salwa Amin Arrested On Heroin And Oxy Possession Charges
Buckwild star Salwa Amin was arrest on drug possession charges. The charges levied against the MTV reality show cast member include intent to deliver. One of Amin’s charges was for alleged heroin possession, the other was for oxycodone.
Salwa Amin was expected to post the $200,000 bonded mandated by the court, TMZ reports. She was arraigned in Monday morning. Amin, 24, was arraigned in Nicholas County, West Virginia. The show is taped in the rural region.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Buckwild was expected to fill the void felt by Jersey Shore fans when Snooki and crew packed their bags. MTV announced a second season of Buckwild was approved last week.
Jail staffer Sgt. Rick Drakes told reporters that the Buckwild star is not interested in talking to the media, according to the Huffington Post. MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton also issued a “no comment” to the reporters after Amin’s arrest.
Buckwild has drawn a lot of criticism for furthering a negative or stereotypical view of West Virginians. Senator Joe Manchin wrote a letter to MTV asking them not to film the reality show in his state.
Salwa Amin lives at home with her “strict” parents, according to the Buckwild website. She is a recent college graduate. She is the oldest member of the new reality show cast. Amin’s cast bio also notes that she is “always down for a good time” and is the first one at the party when she can slip away from the house.
