Bruno Mars Dodges A Legal Grenade
Crooner Bruno Mars has seen a lot of the success that Hollywood can offer and last year he got a taste of the pitfalls that it can bring as well. Remember when the bathroom attendant ratted out Bruno and got him busted with cocaine in that stall ? Well, turns out Bruno got the ultimate slap on the wrist today. He cut a deal with the Clark County D.A.'s office and he will NOT have a conviction on his record for his Las Vegas cocaine arrest. According to TMZ the D.A. has agreed to a "deferred adjudication" - which basically means if he stays out of trouble for a year and does some community service, it's like nothing ever happened.
Mars was arrested in September at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, after a bathroom attendant ratted him out and told security there was a man in a stall doing drugs.
Under the deal, which attorney Blair Berk orchestrated with prosecutors, Mars will do 200 hours of community service and undergo private counseling.
At the end of the 12-month period, the felony will be officially dismissed.
Hopefully Bruno learns from this and stays on the right track ... dude is MAD talented.
