It may sound glamorous to have a star for a mother or father, but for many celebrity kids, their parents' fame and fortune often leads to no good.

The latest case in point? Jon Bon Jovi's daughter, Stephanie Bongiovi, who was arrested for drug possession after she allegedly overdosed on heroin in her dorm room at Hamilton College in New York.

The charges have since been dropped against the 19-year-old college student due to a New York law that specifically prohibits prosecution of people who experience a drug overdose, as well as the people who help them seek medical care.

But many celebrity kids don't have legal luck like Stephanie.

Famous faces like Nick Hogan, Nicole Richie and Courtney Wagner have all been plagued with arrests and legal woes, and actors like Mackenzie Phillips and Redmond O'Neal have even been sentenced to stints in rehab.
