Rocker Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was arrested in her dorm room at Hamilton College in upstate New York early Wednesday morning after she allegedly overdosed on heroin.

“On Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, members of the Kirkland Police Department arrested two Hamilton College students,” reads a statement from the college given to FOX 411. “One was charged with possession of a controlled substance, 7th degree, and the second was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, 7th degree and possession of drug paraphernalia. All are misdemeanors. In addition to violating state law, the actions alleged to have been committed by the students violate Hamilton College policy. The college is cooperating with the police investigation.”


Bongiovi, who is from Red Bank, N.J., was allegedly found unresponsive in her dorm room in Kirkland around 1:51 a.m. and a small amount of heroin was reportedly found at the scene.

Fellow student, 21-year-old Ian Grant, also from Red Bank, was also arrested.

Bongiovi is currently hospitalized and recovering and is expected to appear in court at a later date.
