The star of a controversial reality show could soon be out of jail.  During a hearing Wednesday in Nicholas County, a judge reduced the bond for Salwa Amin from $200,000 to $100,000.

The star of MTV's reality show, Buckwild, has been in the Central Regional Jail since Sunday. State Police troopers said they caught her and two men with oxycodone. Troopers also said they found heroin in the house they were in.

Amin's attorney talked with reporters before her court appearance. "The charges are certainly significant. We're talking with the prosecuting attorney right now to see how we might resolve those," said Mike Callaghan.

If investigators can prove the drugs came from out of state, the charges could become federal.
