Salwa Amin, one of the stars of MTV’s controversial reality show Buckwild, was arrested in Nicholas County, West Virginia over the weekend. Amin is facing felony drug charges after local cops found her and two men in their twenties in possession of the highly addictive drug Oxycodone, also known as “Hillbilly Heroin.”
Reckon this is what Senator Joe Manchin was talking about when he castigated Buckwild producers for “making money off the poor decisions” of West Virginia’s youth?
Amin was taken into custody in a drug raid on Sunday, E! News reports. Officers found the 24-year-old, along with two men, hiding out in a shed with a “large quantity of Oxycodone” in her purse. Police also discovered three separate packages of heroin in the shed.
Amin and her cohorts were arrested on a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver. They remain held in the West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility on $200,000 bond.
Buckwild, the redneck’s answer to Jersey Shore, is billed as “an authentic comedic series following an outrageous group of childhood friends from the rural foothills of West Virginia who love to dodge grown-up responsibilities and always live life with the carefree motto, ‘whatever happens, happens.’”
