Feb. 19, 2021 – She and her friend, Ian S Grant, were later arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and illegal possession of marijuana. The charges were dropped under the Good Samaritan law, which dissolves charges when someone has a potentially lethal amount of drugs inside them.  “She’s good. She’s getting through it,” Bon Jovi told Metro. “She’s healthy. The greatest gift that I have is that I have her. We’ll get through this. It was a shock for everybody and hopefully, we learn from these life lessons.”

“It wasn’t what you see in the movies. It’s a pill form that these kids have access to. It was the first and hopefully the last time.” “It was my worst moment as a father. The first thing she said, I’m all right but then she said this is what happened. You wake up, you shake it off and put your shoes on and say OK, I am on the way home.” Bon Jovi later revealed that he was just as shocked as anyone when he learned the news of his daughters overdose. “You surround them with the best help and love and move on, and that’s where we’re at with it,” he told the Associated Press. “I’m shocked as much as the next parent with this situation and had no idea. Steph is a great kid. Great GPA. Cool school everything about it is idyllic. She was doing great, then a sudden and steep decline.” “It was a terrible speed bump that we got over,” Bon Jovi told People. “There was no need to be any closer to our kids. We couldn’t get any closer.” A  year after her overdose, though, in 2012, she got work as an assistant at The Weinstein Company, and in 2015, she worked as an intern at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and at Vice Media. Her LinkedIn profile says she is a freelance production assistant.
