CLINTON, N.Y. (AP) — A central New York prosecutor says drug charges against Jon Bon Jovi’s 19-year-old daughter have been dropped.

Stephanie Bongiovi was found unresponsive by medics after she apparently overdosed on heroin in a Hamilton College dorm early Wednesday.

Town of Kirkland police charged Bongiovi, of Red Bank, N.J., and another student with possession of a small amount of heroin and marijuana.

Oneida County District Attorney Scott McNamara said Thursday he was dismissing the charges against both students. Under state law, someone having a drug overdose or seeking help for an overdose victim can’t be prosecuted for having a small amount of heroin or any amount of marijuana.

Bon Jovi is scheduled to perform a concert to benefit Hamilton on Dec. 5. He has not commented on his daughter.
