CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A cast member of the MTV reality show "BUCKWILD" is facing a drug charge in West Virginia.

Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin is being held a jail in central West Virginia on a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver.

Records show Amin was booked into the jail early Monday.

Details of her arrest weren't immediately available.

Sgt. Rick Drake with the jail says Amin doesn't want to talk to the media.

He didn't know whether she had a lawyer.

MTV announced last week that the show will be picked up for a second season.

A spokesman and a spokeswoman for MTV didn't immediately return telephone messages Monday.

"BUCKWILD" shows wild young West Virginians and has drawn criticism for what some see as a negative portrayal of the state's young people.
