Bruno Mars Cleared of Cocaine Possession Charge


Bruno Mars


His lawyer told a judge in Las Vegas court that the singer has completed the requirements including community service and drug education classes.

Bruno Mars' star is shining again. As his debut album, "Doo - Wops & Hooligans" makes a trip back to number one on U.K. charts, his felony cocaine possession charge has just been dismissed in Las Vegas.

Mars, whose real name is Peter Gene Hernandez, did not appear in person for the brief hearing at Clark County District Court. His attorney told Judge Jessie Walsh that the singer completed 230 hours of community service, which exceeded the 200 hours required by the judge, and also finished his drug education classes. He also stayed out of trouble.

Mars' lawyer Blair Berk told reporters, "Bruno earned the dismissal of his charge. He exceeded the expectations of the court in both his service to the community and his counseling."

Mars was arrested in 2010 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's bathroom after an attendant told the hotel's security that someone was doing coke in a stall. He didn't get formal probation but the judge fined him $2,000.
