'Buckwild' star arrested: Salwa Amin busted in drug raid
Salwa Amin, the self-proclaimed "Bengali in Boots" from MTV's "Buckwild," is now a Bengali behind bars.
Police in Summersville, W. Va. raided a private residence after being tipped off about a drug shipment that was making its way to the house.
E! News reports cops put the place under surveillance and noticed a surplus of foot traffic, prompting them to acquire search warrants. When they entered the residence, Amin and two men were placed under arrest.
Police say Amin had a large quantity of Oxycodone in her purse, one of her buddies had a stack of cash, and inside a shed was three bags of heroine. One of the arrestees reported Amin and the other gentleman brought the drugs to the house to distribute.
All three were jailed and bail was set at $200,000. Amin and her cohorts are each being charged with possession on intent to deliver. MTV recently renewed "Buckwild" for a second season. So far, the network has no comment.
