Bruno Mars Gets Out of Cocaine Bust
Singer Bruno Mars has escaped conviction from his arrest for cocaine possession, cutting a deal for community service instead.
Mars was busted in Las Vegas last September, getting caught at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino doing the drug in a bathroom stall.
TMZ reports the Clark Country District Attorney Office has agreed to a "deferred adjudication," which means if the singer stays out of trouble for 12 months and performs 200 hours of community service, the felony will be dismissed in 12 months.
Mars will also undergo private counseling.
