Jon Bon Jovi's Daughter Arrested After Heroin Overdose
Emergency responders rushed to a Hamilton College dorm room early this morning in Kirkland, New York after they received a call about an unresponsive female. Upon arrival, they discovered the unresponsive female was the daughter of rock star Jon Bon Jovi. Nineteen-year-old Stephanie R Bongiovi was quickly transported to the hospital and charged with a few drug-related offenses including possession of a controlled substance. Sheís expected to be out of the hospital by the end of the day.
According to WKTV, the other student inside the dorm room, twenty-one-year-old Ian S Grant, was also arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance. Hours later, authorities were able to get a search warrant to check out another residence related to the investigation, and while there, more heroin, marijuana and drug-related paraphernalia were discovered. Itís unclear whether any of these finds will alter the charges currently standing against Grant and Bongiovi, but we should know in the next few days.
Marijuana-related offenses arenít particularly shocking or dangerous among college kids, but heroin is a separate beast entirely. Thatís the type of drug that ruins lives, and this is a good indication of that. Hopefully, both Grant and Bongiovi arenít in so deep with the drug right now that itíll be difficult for them to extricate themselves from its grip.
The Bon Jovi family hasnít released a statement about this morningís upsetting events yet, but one would imagine the first concern is, of course, with their daughterís health. Weíll keep you updated.
