Jane Velez-Mitchell takes a stand on the biggest topics of the day that people across the country are buzzing about.

Did Bon Jovi's daughter almost OD on heroin?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Stephanie Bongiovi was found unresponsive in her dorm room
  • Charges against Bongiovi were later dropped

A young woman believed to be the daughter of singer Jon Bon Jovi nearly died of a heroin overdose. Police say a student at Hamilton College by the name of Stephanie Bongiovi was rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive in her dorm room.

Bongiovi was arrested, but charges against her were dropped on Thursday because the District Attorney’s office says a New York law states that the victim of an overdose can’t face charges for having the drugs they overdosed on.

Jane Velez-Mitchell investigates how pervasive heroin addiction is in this country. For more on this story, watch Jane Velez-Mitchell weeknights at 7 p.m. ET on HLN.
