Jon Bon Jovi's daughter was arrested after an alleged heroin overdose. Her mother is Dorothea Hurley, whom Bon Jovi married in 1989; they have four children together. The 19-year-old college student was arrested on the morning of Nov. 14, 2012. She was at her college dorm in upstate New York when the incident took place. Someone phoned the police to report that Stephanie Rose Bongiovi had overdosed on heroin and was unresponsive.

When emergency personnel and police officers responded to the scene, they discovered that Bongiovi was thankfully still alive. After drug paraphernalia, marijuana and heroin were found in her room, she was placed under arrest. According to TMZ, "Stephanie was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia -- all misdemeanors." Jon Bon Jovi's daughter was arrested, booked and released on the same day. She is scheduled to appear in court at a future date. Another college student, who has not been named, was also arrested on similar charges.
