It’s bizarre to think that Jon Bon Jovi literally experienced a parent’s worst nightmare early this morning: receiving a call saying his child had been arrested following an alleged heroin overdose. TMZ first reported that police had responded to a call made from Hamilton College claiming the singer’s eldest child Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was “unresponsive” in her dorm room shortly before 2:00 a.m. Stephanie was allegedly treated at a hospital following intervention from emergency medical personnel, then subsequently arrested and charged after a “small quantity of Heroin,” marijuana and “drug paraphernalia” were found in her room. Thus begins a child’s worst nightmare: being simultaneously hugged and yelled at by a deeply terrified Bon Jovi. (We’re assuming.)
“In addition to violating state law, the actions alleged to have been committed by the students violate Hamilton College policy,” Hamilton College said in a statement. “The college is cooperating with the police investigation. Our first concern is always for the safety of our students. Out of respect for the privacy of our students and in accordance with federal regulations we do not discuss individual health or disciplinary matters.” Stephanie is currently recovering from the alleged overdose and has since been released from custody; she will have to return to court at a later date to face the misdemeanor charges. Fellow student Ian S. Grant was also arrested and charged with drug possession following the incident, but more importantly, will probably have to face the wrath of Jon Bon Jiovi.
