Drug charges filed against Jon Bon Jovi’s teenage daughter have been dropped, a day after police found her unresponsive in a dorm room at her New York college.

Cops and emergency medical technicians were called to Hamilton College in the early hours of Wednesday amid allegations Stephanie Rose Bongiovi had suffered a heroin overdose.

The 19 year old was found alive but was admitted to hospital for treatment.

A search of the room uncovered a "small quantity" of heroin, marijuana and drug paraphernalia and Bongiovi and 21-year-old student Ian S. Grant were subsequently booked on drug charges.

However, misdemeanour counts including criminal possession of a controlled substance, criminal possession of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia have all been dismissed as a result of New York State Penal Law section 220.78, which forbids prosecution against a person who seeks medical treatment for someone who has suffered a life-threatening medical emergency.

Rocker Jon Bon Jovi has yet to speak out about the incident.
