The teenager was brought to hospital and was later arrested for drugs possession and charged with three misdemeanours

. A friend of Stephanie's is also said to be facing a misdemeanour charge.

A spokesperson for Kirkland Police confirmed: "Stephanie was charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Seventh degree, Criminal Possession of Marijuana in he fourth degree, Criminally Using Drug Paraphernalia-all class A misdemeanours and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, a violence."

Jon Bon Jovi's rep has so far refused to comment.

Stephanie - who is the oldest of Jon's four children with wife Dorothea Hurley - is expected to be released from hospital today and is pending a future court appearance.

Stephanie's troubles come shortly after Jon was forced to cut short his UK publicity tour and boarded a private jet to return to his wife and children after their $24 million home was badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy leaving them stranded without power.

A source close to the 50-year-old singer said: "He was really incredibly anxious for his family who were stuck in New York in an apartment and was desperate to be reunited with them."
