Jon Bon Jovi’s Daughter Arrested After Suspected Heroin Overdose

Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was arrested at her college in Upstate New York early this morning after allegedly overdosing on heroin, according to TMZ.

Cops responded to a dorm room at Hamilton College after someone reported that Stephanie had allegedly overdosed on heroin and was unresponsive. Along with police, emergency medical personnel also responded to the scene and found Stephanie alive.

Cops say a drug task force searched the scene and found a “small quantity” of heroin, along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Stephanie was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia.

Stephanie was eventually released from custody, and ordered to appear in court at a later date.

    Stephanie and her friend Ian Grant have been cleared of drug possession charges.

    According to the New York Post, Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara ruled that “he was dismissing the charges because, under the law, someone suffering a drug overdose or seeking help for an overdose victim cannot be prosecuted for possessing a small amount of heroin or any amount of pot.”

    “People will say she got away with murder because of who she is, but this law was passed so people don’t watch somebody die because they’re afraid of jail,” McNamara told the Daily News. “And you don’t want the person overdosing to say, ‘No, don’t call.”

    The District Attorney reportedly said that that law had refrained prosecutors from pressing the charges on suspects and they had little choice but to clear them, referring to the Good Samaritan 911 Law.

    In 2011, Gov. Cuomo implemented Good Samaritan 911 Law. This law was introduced to contain the number of deaths cause by overdose of drug. It also encourages people to call in police to help without a fear of being charged with drug case or arrested.
