Bruno Mars To Avoid Conviction
Bruno Mars will avoid a drugs conviction providing he stays out of trouble until 2012.
Mars was arrested on September 19th last year after a bathroom attendant at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe saw the singer with a bag of cocaine. He was set to appear in court on February 4th but has reached a plea deal with Las Vegas prosecutors.
TMZ is reporting that the District Attorney in Clark County has agreed to a "deferred adjudication", which will allow Mars to have the charge dismissed if he isn't arrested in the next 12 months. In exchange the singer has to complete 200 hours of community service and undergo private counselling sessions.
