Jon Bon Jovi's daughter arrested after possible heroin overdose

Stephanie Bongiovi, Jon Bon Jovi's daughter, was arrested early Wednesday and is facing drug charges after a suspected heroin overdose in her upstate New York college dorm room.

Authorities were called to Hamilton College just before 2 a.m. on a report that a woman had possibly overdosed and was unresponsive, police told the Utica Observer-Dispatch.

After a small quantity of heroin was found by police on the scene, a search warrant was executed and heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were found, police told the newspaper.

Bongiovi, who is 19 and Bon Jovi's eldest child and the only daughter of four children, was arrested, released and ordered to return to court at a later date. She was recovering at an unnamed hospital and was expected to be released Wednesday, police told People magazine.

She and fellow Hamilton student Ian Grant, 21, who was also arrested, face misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance. Bongiovi was also charged with possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.

That is so scary. I hope she'll be okay and gets help if she has a problem.

Jon Bon Jovi was one of my first crushes.
