Bruno Mars dodges jail with guilty plea on felony drug case

Grammy winner Bruno Mars has pleaded guilty to his felony cocaine possession case in a Las Vegas courtroom Wednesday. The 25-year-old “Just the Way You Are” singer dodged jail in exchange for 200 hours of community service and a year of probation.

Mars – real name Peter Gene Hernandez – was arrested in the Sin City in September after he was seen with a 2.6-gram bag of cocaine.

His legal team managed to work out a plea deal, though. Instead of jail, he was ordered to be placed on probation for a year, undergo drug counseling, and complete 200 hours of community service, as well as pay a $2,000 fine.

Because he is a first-time offender, the felony charge will be wiped clean from his record if he stays out of trouble for the next twelve months. If he misbehaves, he could face prison time.

Mars has just won Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for his single “Just the Way You Are” at the Grammys on Sunday.
