Jon Bon Jovi's Daughter: Drug Charges Dropped

Originally posted 11/15/2012 04:40PM

Jon Bon Jovi's daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, no longer faces drug charges because of New York's law applying to overdose cases in which there was a call for help, authorities said Thursday.

Bongiovi, 19, and Ian S. Grant, 21, both students at Hamilton College in Upstate New York, were arrested this week on drug possession charges after officers found heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in her dorm room, according to police.

On Thursday, the misdemeanor charges against both were dropped because of a 2011 amendment to the New York penal code exempting people from possession charges if they had sought help for somebody experiencing a "drug or alcohol overdose or other life-threatening medical emergency."

Jon Bon Jovi gave Detroit’s East Side something to sing about Monday. The Grammy winner helped knock down a block’s worth of buildings to make room for five new homes.

The houses are being built by a partnership between the rocker’s Philadelphia Soul Charitable Foundation, the Saturn car company and Habitat for Humanity.

“I wanted to give something back to you,” the rocker, whose foundation provides affordable housing to communities in need, told the crowd, according to the Associated Press.
