Bruno Mars has formally entered a plea deal with the Clark County District Attorney’s Office on Friday, which means his cocaine arrest last September will not appear on his criminal record. But the singer has to steer clear of trouble for a year.
Singer Bruno Mars, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, has entered a plea deal in court for his cocaine arrest.
Mars was arrested in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel in September when a security guard confronted him in the bathroom and discovered he had cocaine.
Bruno, 25, agreed to a “deferred adjudication” deal which means the arrest will not appear on his criminal record if he can stay out of trouble for 12 months.
Mars also has to complete 200 hours of community service and then the felony will be dismissed.
The singer’s lawyer stated, “Bruno is very appreciative he is being given this opportunity as a first offender not to suffer any conviction and instead to have his charge dismissed. He is taking all of this quite seriously.”
