Authorities say Jon Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter is hospitalized after overdosing on heroin in a dorm at her upstate New York college.
Town of Kirkland police say an ambulance was sent to Hamilton College early Wednesday morning after a report that a female had apparently overdosed on heroin.
Investigator Peter Cania says Stephanie Bongiovi, of Red Bank, N.J., is recovering at a hospital he declined to name.
Police say Bongiovi and 21-year-old Ian Grant, also of Red Bank, were charged with drug possession. Both were issued tickets and ordered to appear in court at a later date. Police didn't know if they have lawyers.
The musician's representative isn't commenting.
Bon Jovi is scheduled to perform at a benefit concert for Hamilton in Times Square on Dec. 5.

Looks like another storm system moving in to start the weekend. This one will likely bring a mix of snow, sleet, and rain. Stay tuned.
