EXCLUSIVE

Stephanie Rose Bongiovi
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 ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Town of Kirkland Police Department, 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 -- all misdemeanors.

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

Another student was also arrested -- a 21-year-old male -- who was also charged with drug possession.

Stephanie is Jon's only daughter -- and the oldest of his 4 children with wife Dorothea Hurley.

the article doesn't say that she was using---just that she was unresponsive...how many of u s have been "unresponsive" when completely exhausted and may seem unresponsive? she was arrested because she was in the room where it was found--no evidence to say that it was her's....was it in plain sight or did the cops look for it......the article isn't as
complete as you all think....read it again....was she even found in HER room??? before passing judgement on her make sure that you all have the facts....go back and read the article---it never says that they responded HER room, but to A room....there is a big difference....

So much sympathy here. When you go to a thread on Charlie Sheen it's loser, crackhead or hope he dies comments. What a bunch op hypocrites. Lets just hope she's living on a prayer and doesn't escape any upcoming possible charges.

it's a lack of focus on a real goal in life and the feeling of isolation , and also these kids are somehow buying into a vision that these types of drugs are glamorous , which could not be further from the truth. well just look at how the stupid cigarette companies make cigarettes look glamorous. sad and not true. my guess is this girl has the mentality ( from growing up without a care in the world) that nothing will hurt her or threaten her well being. SHE IS SO WRONG ! Bon Jovi seems like a good guy so im sure he will take this very seriously and step right in there to get her help NOW !

Well, if the "other student" is a minority and poor, his ass is going to jail, while absolutely nothing will happen to her!

Unfortunately, the children of the wealthy,often choose the road to perdition. Being born with a silver spoon in your mouth can choke you. E.g, the Kardashians,Brody Jenner, Lamas family, Michael Douglas' son and numerous others. Sorry for Jon and his wife.

It's sad and disgusting some of the comments that are on here. Jon Bon Jovi is a hard working father just like most people. His daughter is in college. It is hard for any of us to know exactly what our children are doing and we all hope we taught them right from wrong. He is a humanitarian, a rock star but first and formost a father and husband. The majority of you who have all this negativity in your hearts are the ones I feel sorry for. Jon will do what is needed for his daughter. I'm sorry you all never had that kind of support in your lives and need to hate others for it. Much Love JBJ my heart is with you!!

A rock star kid taking drugs?! What's new here?
Although I like some of Jon's songs, I never bought the story of him being a great family guy or a good dad. If you read or watch his interviews, you easily realize that he oozes with *******ness and arrogance!

Jon keeps his kids out of the spotlight. Rightfully so. He's the star not them. All fans should respect that and not speculate. It's a family matter. If you're not fan or familiar w/ Jon Bon Jovi and the good he does...Shut Up! You know nothing but gossip.
