Bond was reduced in half Wednesday for a cast member of the MTV reality show "Buckwild" who is facing multiple drug charges.

A Nicholas County magistrate lowered the bond for Salwa Amin, 24, Wednesday from $200,000 to $100,000. She waived her right to a preliminary hearing. Charges will now be presented to a grand jury.

Amin is charged with possession intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute oxycodone and two counts of conspiracy. The reality cast member is charged along with two others, Shawn Booker and Jason Jones.

She is lodged in the Central Regional Jail.

Accompanying this story is raw footage of Amin's arrival to the preliminary hearing and her departure.
