CHARLESTON, W.Va. — 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's 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 at a home in Summersville after receiving a tip from an informant. Officers say they found oxycodone pills and heroin.

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.

"Buckwild" shows wild young West Virginians. It has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the state's youth.

MTV announced last week that the show will be picked up for a second season, as it has been doing well in the ratings department.
