Jon Bon Jovi talks daughter Stephanie's drug scare (Video)

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Last week, singer Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was taken to the hospital and arrested after a call came into medical personnel stating that the college student had overdosed on heroin.

Thankfully, Stephanie was okay after further examination at a local hospital; she and Ian S. Grant, 21, were arrested after investigators found heroin, marijuana and other paraphernalia in her dorm room.

However, despite the drugs and paraphernalia found in the dorm, Stephanie and Grant were not charged due to a law passed stating that neither the victim nor the witness who seeks medical attention can be charged. Also, the amounts of drugs found in the dorm were not of enough to amount to criminal charges.

The devastation in the family still lingers and the “Livin’ on a Prayer” singer is speaking out for the first time about the situation. "This tragedy was something that I had to face too so we'll get through it. And people's warm wishes for my family and I have been really reassuring. So, we're good,” Bon Jovi tells Fox 411, noting, “Things happen.”
