Three days ago Jon Bon Jovi’s 19 year old daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, overdosed on Heroin while on campus at Hamilton College.
“Stephanie Bongiovi was found unconscious in the Dunham Hall dorm on the campus of Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., shortly before 2 a.m., police said.
Fellow New Jersey native Ian S. Grant, also a Hamilton undergraduate, made the frantic call for help but was later arrested in connection with the frightening incident, cops said.
Investigators found heroin at the scene and recovered marijuana and glassine envelopes after obtaining a search warrant, he said.
Bongiovi was arrested at the hospital on charges of misdemeanor possession of the heroin, misdemeanor marijuana possession, criminally using drug paraphernalia and a violation related to the marijuana, Cania said.
“She was issued an appearance ticket at the hospital and released. It constituted an arrest, but she was not handcuffed,” he said. “She has yet to be fingerprinted and photographed. She’ll do that at court when she returns for arraignment.”
Grant, 21, was also charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and released back to Hamilton pending a court appearance at a later date, police said.
“In addition to violating state law, the actions alleged to have been committed by the students violate Hamilton College policy,” a college spokesperson said in a written statement.
“The college is cooperating with the police investigation,” the statement continued. “Our first concern is always for the safety of our students.”
