Jon Bon Jovi's teenage daughter arrested for possession after heroin overdose

What's going on with all these celebrity kids? Recently we've seen Sly Stallone's son Sage passing away (allegedly for a drug-related heart attack) Laurence Fishburne's daughter Montana making her debut in the porn industry, and now this. Of course, we have kids like Jaden and Willow Smith happily embracing the showbiz industry without suffering the side effects of their parent's fame and success, but still, there's a high percentage that has not been capable of dealing with the repercussions of a life lived under the spotlight.

So, what exactly happened yesterday to Jon Bon Jovi's 19 years old daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi? According to TMZ she was arrested after overdosing on heroin in her dorm. Emergency services were called just before 2 AM when a male student realised she had collapsed in her room on the campus of Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y. Shortly after arriving, the ambulance rushed the teenager to the hospital, while the Police examined the scene. Surprise surprise, they found heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Back to the hospital, after being declared out of danger, she was arrested for possession and criminally using drug paraphernalia. Kirkland Police Investigator Peter Cania said that she was only issued an appearance ticket at the hospital and released. It constituted an arrest, but she was not handcuffed and she will be fingerprinted and photographed when she returns for arraignment at a later date.

Apparently, she's been dabbling with hard drugs for a while and this episode has been a wake up call for all those close to her, who were possibly underestimating the scale of the issue. Her drug problem has also inevitably been brought to the attention of Hamilton College officials, and a spokesperson has declared on the matter that "In addition to violating state law, the actions alleged to have been committed by the students violate Hamilton College policy", which suggests that the superstar's daughter's future in the college might be well compromised.

So what about the Times Square fundraising event Jon Bon Jovi has agreed to lead to raise money for Hamilton's scholarships and arts programs? It should take place on the 5th of December, let's wait and see...
