Buckwild cast member Salwa Amin was arrested and jailed on drug charges in West Virginia this weekend. She is being held on $200,000 (!) bond.

Amin, 24, was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

State police say a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two others late Sunday at a home in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant.


Officers say they found oxycodone pills and heroin, while Summersville Jail Administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesn't want to talk to the media.

MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network has no comment.

Buckwild, sort of like Jersey Shore but set in the woods, shows a group of young West Virginia residents drinking, hooking up and doing crazy $h!t.

It has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the state's youth ... and that was before Salwa was apparently busted for dealing.
