Magistrate reduces bond for 'BUCKWILD' cast member

Feb. 13, 2013 @ 03:26 PM

SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — A Nicholas County magistrate has cut reality show "BUCKWILD" cast member Salwa Amin's bond in half.

The 24-year-old Amin had been held on $200,000 bond at the Central Regional Jail since her arrest late Sunday night. She's charged with two counts of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.

Her lawyer, Michael Callaghan, says Amin's bond was reduced Wednesday to $100,000 cash. She waived a preliminary hearing.

Callaghan says he expects Amin to be released within a day or so.

He says they will address the charges at the appropriate time.

West Virginia State Police say a multi-agency task force arrested Amin and two other people at a Summersville residence after receiving a tip from an informant. A search found oxycodone pills, heroin and $3,000 in cash.
