Bruno Mars

Cuts Deal in

Coke Possession Case

2/16/2011 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bruno Mars just formally pled guilty today to possession of a controlled substance.

Bruno Mars

Mars was in a Las Vegas courtroom with his lawyer, Blair Berk, when Mars pled guilty to felony cocaine possession, but if he stays out of trouble for 12 months, the charge will be dismissed -- as if it never happened.

Mars is also required to do 8 hours of private counseling and 200 hours of community service with a charitable organization.  He must also pay a $2,000 fine -- which he's paying today ... because he has Bruno Mars money.

Berk tells TMZ, "We are very pleased  that the prosecution has agreed to dismiss the charge."

As we previously reported, Bruno was arrested in September at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino after a bathroom attendant told security a man was doing coke in the bathroom.

ONE WORD....BULL****! FELONY!!!! Drug Possession and this ******* gets away scott free??? Screw this judge and the corrupt legal system he is employed under. I am tired of these so called "stars" getting away with murder (literally). Any other Joe Schmo get the book tossed at them and spends years in prison....This underserving little punk will learn NOTHING from this horse**** of a sentence

I don't understand where you people get all this crap about "Hollywood Justice" and stars getting off easy. I've seen redneck idiots here in Ohio get 6 DUIs and still end up driving around. In high school and college I've watched a ton of people get out of alcohol and drug charges. I guess we get the same "Hollywood Justice" out here in the midwest...
