'Buckwild' Star Salwa Amin Is Back in Jail
MTV's "Buckwild" star Salwa Amin was sent back to jail on Wednesday, March 27, after she violated the terms of her release. She allegedly failed a drug test ordered by the court in connection with her previous arrest. Associated Press, on the other hand, reported that a jail official said the actress was rearrested because she violated the release terms by failing to appear in court.
According to WOWK-TV's 13 News, Nicholas County probation office officials said that a court-ordered drug test found traces of oxycodone and morphine in the 24-year-old actress' body. As the results, Amin was sent to Braxton County's Central Regional Jail as a pretrial felon and currently held without bail until her next hearing.
Previously, Amin was arrested in a drug raid in January which targeted her friend's house. According to TMZ, she was accused of delivering oxycodone and morphine to the house in order to sell them. She was booked on two counts of drug possession with intent to deliver and jailed on $100,000 bond.
"Buckwild" is a reality TV show which portrays the life of young adult in West Virginia. The show gained criticism because of the negative portrayal of West Virginia's youngster. Before its premiere in January, West Virgina Senator Joe Manchin wrote a letter addressed to MTV, saying that the show "plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia."
A cast member of the show, Shae Bradley, commented in an interview, "Well, as far as the criticism goes, I represent myself and myself only. So to say that nine individuals represent the whole state of West Virginia is just silly, you know? Even my best friends on the show, if they do something embarrassing, that's on them." It was confirmed in February that "Buckwild" would continue to season 2.
