Jon Bon Jovi's daughter was arrested this morning after overdosing on heroin, according to reports.

Nineteen-year-old Stephanie Rose Bongiovi was found unresponsive at her upstate New York dorm room just before 2am, local news station WKTV reports.

Emergency personnel responded to the scene at her Hamilton College dorm.

Stephanie was reportedly taken to a local hospital and is expected to be released on Wednesday.

The Town of Kirkland Police Department conducted a search in her room and found a "small quantity" of heroin, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia, according to the outlet.

The teenager was reportedly arrested and charged her with three misdemeanours: possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and criminally using drug paraphernalia.

Fellow student Ian Grant, 21, also faces a misdemeanour drug charge.

Both students have been released from police custody and are expected to appear in court at a later date.

Hamilton College told the news station they are cooperating with police in the investigation.

Stephanie is Jon's eldest of four children with wife Dorothea Hurley.

The singer has yet to issue comment on the report.

Gemini:

You're determined to get your agenda met, even if it means being loud and difficult. The prospect of creating friction does not bother you at all. You'd rather put people in an uncomfortable position than accept their inflexible position. By stirring up enough publicity, you could exert enough pressure to create some changes. A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
