Buckwild‘s Salwa Amin was arrested this morning in West Virginia on a felony charge of drug possession with the intent to deliver.
According to the criminal complaint obtained by WOWKTV, Salwa, 24, and two other men were arrested after police found Oxycodone in her purse at the scene of a drug bust.
In the complaint it says authorities were tipped off by an informant that a drug shipment was scheduled to be delivered to a Nicholas County home in a car with Michigan plates on February 10. The Central West Virginia Drug Task Force were at the residence and witnessed a vehicle with a Michigan license plate arrive.
Police executed a search warrant and entered the residence as well as a shed located on the property. Inside the shed police found Salwa Amin, Shawn Booker, Jason Jones and three packages of heroin. As mentioned above, police also found Oxycodone in Salwa’s purse.
Jason Jones told police that it was Salwa Amin and Shawn Booker who transported the drugs to the home.
Salwa is currently being held in Central Regional Jail with a bond of $200,000 and is set to be arraigned this morning.
MTV has yet to comment on the situation.

Here is a video report from 13 News that doesn’t have much more information:
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Salwa has been in trouble with the law. Back in July of last year, she was arrested for disorderly conduct after authorities found her screaming and yelling at a man at 4 a.m, but luckily, the charges ended up being dismissed. And in June of 2009, Salwa was arrested and booked for arson but told police it was supposed to be a practical joke. (You can read more about both arrests by clicking the link)
