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."

It's mostly likely because Paris and her douche of a boyfriend are white and Bruno is Puerto Rican and Filipino. If it ain’t white it ain’t right.

Bruno is the most talented artist to hit the scene so far this year. He has so much going for him that I PRAY this is it as far as him getting into trouble. Bruno - if you read this - I STILL LOVE YOU and think you're awesome!!!!!

To Post #26 Mrs. Mars - You say he is the most talented artist to hit the scene so far this year, yet half of the comments are saying who is this guy? I have no idea who he is either, but he looks just like the guy who washed my car last week. Just why is he famous? I have no idea.

One would think that as famous as some of you believe this clown is, everyone would would know who he is? NOT!!!

And IF he is so talented, rich and famous; then he would be getting the same treatment as Paris, Lindsey...obviously, he is not rich, talented or famous, Oh yeah, he's a black man..so he should automatically get off, so no one is accused of racial profiling?

Christ! get a clue people!
