Jon Bon Jovi's Daughter Arrested: Heroin Overdose

According to celebrity website TMZ, Jon Bon Jovi's oldest daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, was arrested at Hamilton College early on the morning of November 14 after an alleged heroin overdose.  

According to TMZ, Kirkland police answered a call from the Upstate New York school claiming that Stephanie, 19, had overdosed and was unresponsive. Emergency medical personnel found Stephanie alive, but in possession of illegal substances.

TMZ reports that a drug task force searched the dorm room, where they uncovered a "small quantity" of heroin, along with marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. As a result, Stephanie was taken into custody and charged with multiple misdemeanors. She was eventually released and ordered to appear in court at a later date.

According to TMZ, another student, a 21-year-old male, was also arrested on charges of drug possession.

In a statement to Us Weekly, Hamilton College acknowledged the incident and stated the school was working with the Kirkland Police Department to address the issue.

"In addition to violating state law, the actions alleged to have been committed by the students violate Hamilton College policy," the statement read. "The college is cooperating with the police investigation. Our first concern is always for the safety of our students. Out of respect for the privacy of our students and in accordance with federal regulations, we do not discuss individual health or disciplinary matters."

It has to be mentioned that Stephanie is Bon Jovi's only daughter with wife Dorothea Hurley. The pair also have three sons: Jesse James, 17, Jacob Hurley, 10, and Romeo Jon, 8.

Jon Bon Jovi's rep had no comment on the incident.
