Jon Bon Jovi - Drug Charges Dropped Against Jon Bon Jovi's Daughter

Drug charges filed against Jon Bon Jovi's teenage daughter have been dropped, a day after police found her unresponsive in a dorm room at her New York college.

Cops and emergency medical technicians were called to Hamilton College in the early hours of Wednesday (14Nov12) amid allegations Stephanie Rose Bongiovi had suffered a heroin overdose.

The 19 year old was found alive but was admitted to hospital for treatment.

A search of the room uncovered a "small quantity" of heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia and Bongiovi and 21-year-old student Ian S. Grant were subsequently booked on drug charges.

However, misdemeanour counts including criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia have all been dismissed as a result of New York State Penal Law section 220.78, which forbids prosecution against a person who seeks medical treatment for someone who has suffered a life-threatening medical emergency.

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has yet to speak out about the incident.
