Atlantic Records newcomer Bruno Mars bought himself some time as his court date for a felony drug possession charge has been postponed. An attorney for the âJust The Way You Areâ entertainer tells The Associated Press the 25-year-old won’t have to appear in person Thursday in a Las Vegas courtroom. David Chesnoff says Mars will receive a new court date. Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, was arrested in Las Vegas in September (10) after a bathroom attendant at the Hard Rock Hotel allegedly caught him with a bag of white powder, which tested positive for cocaine. Mars has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, which carries a maximum of four years in jail and a $5,000 fine.
