Bruno Mars

Gets Plea Deal in Drug Bust

2/4/2011 2:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bruno Mars' plea deal has been accepted ... meaning he won't have to do jail time for his cocaine arrest last year, and if he keeps his nose clean for the next year ... it all goes away.

Bruno Mars Jail Time
As TMZ first reported, Mars and the Clark County D.A. struck a deal in which Mars would plead guilty to possession of a controlled substance, but the charge will be expunged from his record if he stays out of trouble for the next 12 months.

Mars was in court today with his lawyers, Blair Berk and David Chesnoff, when his plea deal was put on record. He'll officially enter his plea in district court. He will then have to complete 200 hours of community service. It all becomes official on his next court date, February 14.

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.

For the LAST time, Bruno Mars' (aka Peter Hernandez) father is a Puerto Rican from Brooklyn, NY. Some Puerto Ricans have Afro-Carribean heritage (think Jon Secada). Bruno's mother was born in the Philippines and raised in Hawai'i. Bruno is an Asian-Hispanic born and raised in Hawai'i!!!

Whew. Good deal. It will be as if nothing ever happened and nobody will ever know. Wait, what about this post on tmz.com? Would it also be expunged?
