Bruno Mars

FREE AT LAST!!!

1/18/2012 8:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bruno Mars
Bruno Mars is clean as a whistle ... his cocaine possession charge has just been dismissed.

TMZ first reported ... Bruno completed 230 hours of community service after pleading guilty to the charge -- he exceeded the 200 hours required by the judge.  Bruno also finished his drug ed classes per the judge's order.

As a result, his lawyer, Blair Berk, appeared in a Las Vegas court a few minutes ago and the matter is officially erased from Bruno's record. 

Berk told TMZ, "Bruno earned the dismissal of his charge. He exceeded the expectations of the court in both his service to the community and his counseling."

Bruno was arrested in 2010 after a bathroom attendant at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino told hotel security someone was doing coke in a stall.

FYI -- the Las Vegas Deputy District Attorney who first prosecuted Bruno was not in court today -- he was FIRED last year after officials learned the guy had a serious cocaine problem of his own.

oh Bruno, please stay away from drugs. You have so much unbelievable talent and the opportunity to inspire millions of people around the world. It would be hearbreaking to waste it. I am such a true fan of his and he seems like such a sweet person. It would seriously break my heart to see him go downhill like that, like so many artists tend to do. He has so much to be thankful for, not many people get to do what he gets to do or have the things he has. Please, your fans love you Bruno! Always think positive and keep working hard!

good for him I think he's a good young man he made a mistake and he had paid for it so he deserves a second chance he's different from other artists he's not an attention seeker he just lets his work speak for him and all the hard work is paying off he achieved a lot in less than 2 years

Probably dismissed because Vegas prosecutors all do coke. The legal community in Las Vegas is very corrupt.

I give him a month before he's back on the white horse because he's an "effin musician" and he could only write songs when he's high as fvck.

Good for him. Handling his business quietly and efficiently. Maybe LL should follow his lead.

Why the hell do celebs keep getting away with this? Do they not care about the massive violence and the tens of thousands murdered on the border with Mexico? This isn't some weak soft victimless crime these people are committing, and if you doubt it, then hop the border to Mexico and see it for yourself.
