2nd “Buckwild” Cast Member Arrested In W. Va.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (KDKA/AP) — A second cast member of the popular but controversial MTV reality series “Buckwild,” which is based in West Virginia, is in trouble with the law.
According to the Associated Press, an official at the jail in Charleston told media outlets that Michael Burford was arrested on Thursday on a charge of aggravated driving under the influence.
He has since been released from custody.
Burford is known as “Bluefoot” on the show.
The Associated Press reports that Burford said on Twitter Saturday that he let many people down and takes full responsibility for his actions.
Earlier in the week, cast member Salwa Amin was arrested on charges with intent to deliver a controlled substance at a Summersville residence. A search found oxycodone pills, heroin and $3,000 in cash.
The reality show is filmed largely around Sissonville and Charleston.
