Stephanie Bongiovi, Jon Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter, will not be charged after reportedly overdosing on heroin in her dorm at Hamilton College in New York.
According to The Wall Street Journal, authorities say Bongiovi was found unresponsive by an ambulance crew sent to the college early Wednesday, after a report that a female had apparently overdosed in the school's largest dorm.
Although Bongiovi and 21-year-old Ian Grant were charged with drug possession, the charges have now been dropped.
Citing section 220.78, titled "Witness or victim of drug or alcohol overdose," of New York State Penal Law -- which states that a person who seeks health care for someone who is experiencing a drug or alcohol overdose or other life threatening medical emergency, as well as the individual who has overdosed or who was experiencing such life threatening medical emergency, can't be prosecuted for the possession of heroin weighing less than 8 ounces or possession of any amount of marijuana -- police said that neither Bongiovi nor Grant can be charged.
There has been no statement from Jon Bon Jovi at this time.
