A cast member of the MTV reality show "Buckwild" is facing a drug charge in Charleston, W. Va.

Twenty-four-year-old Salwa Amin was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on a felony charge of possession with intent to deliver.

Details of Amin's arrest and the charge weren't immediately available. She is being held at the Central Regional Jail on $200,000 bond.

Jail Administrative Sgt. Rick Drake says Amin doesn't want to talk to the media. He didn't know whether she had a lawyer.

According to TMZ, authorities said Amin was hiding in a shed when police arrived. Amin was said to have a "quantity of Oxycodone" in her purse, according to the site.

MTV announced last week that the show will be picked up for a second season, as it has been doing well in the ratings department. MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network doesn't have any comment at this time on Amin's arrest.
