Jon Bon Jovi's Daughter Arrested After Heroin Overdose
UPDATED: Stephanie Bongiovi, 19, was unresponsive when paramedics arrived at the scene.
Jon Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter is recovering in an upstate New York hospital and facing drug charges after overdosing on heroin in her college dorm.
[UPDATE: Charges have been dropped.]
Stephanie Bongiovi was unresponsive when ambulance workers responded early Wednesday morning to reports of "a female who had allegedly overdosed on heroin" at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., according to a report from the Town of Kirkland Police Department.
Police arrived shortly after and found a small amount of the drug. They then arrested Ian Grant, 21, who was with Bongiovi at the scene.
A search warrant later was obtained by the Oneida County Drug Task Force, and a subsequent search of the premises turned up "a quantity of heroin, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia."
Bongiovi was then arrested and charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fourth-degree possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. All are prosecuted as class A misdemeanors.
Bon Jovi, 50, has two new songs on the soundtrack for the upcoming Al Pacino and Christopher Walken movie Stand-Up Guys. He is scheduled to perform at a Hamilton College concert benefit in Times Square on Dec. 5.
The college is one of an exclusive group of liberal arts schools informally referred to as the "Little Ivies."
