Yeah, we know former hair metal icon Bon Jovi is more beloved by soccer moms than metal fans these days, but as a service to our contingency of ’80s metal readers, we thought you should know this. Jon Bon Jovi’s daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was arrested this morning after allegedly overdosing on heroin in her college dorm room. TMZ reports that the Town of Kirkland police were called to a dorm room at Hamilton College in upstate New York after someone reported the 19 year-old had OD’d on herion in her dorm room and was unresponsive. Apparently, when police showed up, she was found alive, but a drug task force searched the room and found a small quantity of heroin, along with some weed and drug paraphernalia.
After being arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia – all three misdemeanors – she was released from custody. A 21 year-old male was also arrested at the scene. Thankfully, Bongiovi is ok, and hopefully this will serve as a wake up call to her. If nothing else, she’s got a stern talking-to coming from her dad. Stephanie is the oldest of Bon Jovi’s four children, and the only girl.
