Authorities say Jon Bon Jovi's 19-year-old daughter is in hospital after overdosing on heroin in a dorm at her upstate New York college.

Police in the town of Kirkland say an ambulance was sent to Hamilton College early on Wednesday morning after a report a female had apparently overdosed on heroin.

Investigator Peter Cania says Stephanie Bongiovi of Red Bank, New Jersey 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 December 5.
