Bruno Mars

Charged with Cocaine Possession

10/1/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruno Mars has officially been charged with one felony count of possession of a controlled substance following his cocaine arrest last month in Las Vegas ... TMZ has learned.

As we previously reported, Mars was arrested at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on September 19 -- after a bathroom attendant told hotel security that Mars took a "baggie of white powdery substance" into one of the stalls.

If convicted, Mars could spend up to four years behind bars and faces up to a $5,000 fine ... but since he has a clean record it's unlikely he'll serve jail time.

And speaking of records, a rep for Elektra TMZ, "We congratulate Bruno Mars on his chart topping success, and provide him with our full love and support."

Goodon, law enforcement, only problem is, how is this an offense and he gets charged when Paris Hilton walks away? Oh yeah, money talks and law enforcement BALKS.

California, to the rest of us, all over the world (I'm Canadian) y'all look like a bunch of idiots. But then, I was expecting with all the crap with Paris, Lindsay, Oxymoron and who ever else can pull YOUR strings. Please, don't blame it on judges, it's whoever is in office.

He is fab in that song "Nothin' on You." Just make him promise to walk the line and let him go.

Unfortunately this GUY got caught and has to do time in jail, while those 2 douchebags Paris & Lindsay got nothing. Guess the color of justice is GREEN. Maybe if he had a vagina, blonde weaves/extensions & bigger tits & a lot of money he would have just got a fine and slap on the wrist. This **** makes me sick.
Too bad he's not an illegal alien or someone famouses little whore because then Gloria Allbitch would have him crying for the tabloids and extorting money from his drug dealer.

If this guy gets locked up after Paris got off pretty easy do you think people will have a fit?

If his name was Bruno Hilton, he would be fine. He needs the complexion for the protection and nowadays that color is green.

If this is his first offense I doubt he goes to jail unless Las Vegas has tougher penalties. He will prob pay a fine, get probation and community service.

I don't even think Cy Waits, Paris' boyfriend, has been formally charged yet! His Vegas connections and the Hilton influence, which is very significant in Vegas, will definitely help his cause. Bruno, on the other hand, is S.O.L.!!!!!!!!!!!!
