Bruno Mars Gets a Slap on the Wrist For Cocaine Bust

Pop/R&B crooner Bruno Mars has reportedly struck a deal with the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, which almost gives him a free pass for his cocaine bust in Las Vegas.

According to TMZ, the District Attorney has agreed to a “deferred adjudication,” meaning Mars’ record will be wiped completely if he doesn’t get in trouble for 12 months and does 200 hours of community service.

Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, was arrested in Las Vegas in September (10) after a bathroom attendant at the Hard Rock Hotel caught him with a bag of white powder, which tested positive for cocaine.

Facing four years in jail and a $5,000 fine, Mars now can put the incident behind him after his attorney Blair Clerk orchestrated the deal which will see him do community service and undergo private counseling.
