Bon Jovi’s Daughter Arrested After Alleged OD
The daughter of Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi has been arrested after cops were called to Hamilton College to follow-up on a call that the 19-year-old was unresponsive. Stephanie Rose Bongiovi allegedly overdosed on heroin in her dorm room at the upstate New York institution.
According to TMZ, the oldest of Bon Jovi’s four kids was alive when police and medical personnel arrived early Wednesday morning. WIBX in Utica, N.Y. reports that cops found a small amount of heroin and marijuana as well as drug paraphernalia on the premises.
Bongiovi was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana. Twenty one-year-old Ian S. Black was also hit with the same controlled substance charges as Bongiovi. Both will be required to appear to face those charges at the town of Kirkland court at a later date.
WKTV reports that Stephanie Bongiovi was taken to the hospital, and will be released later Wednesday.
