Bruno Mars strikes deal in cocaine case

Bruno Mars, who was arrested Sept. 19 after police allegedly found him with 2.6 grams of cocaine after a concert at Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, will take a plea deal. According to the Associated Press, the first-time offender will waive an evidentiary hearing on Feb. 4 and plead guilty. He’ll pay a $2,000 fine, perform 200 hours of community service, and complete drug counseling. If he stays trouble free for a year, no conviction will remain on his record, the AP reports. Mars, who has seven Grammy nominations, will perform at the Feb. 13 ceremony.

    Bull. If I got caught with 2.6 grams of cocaine, I’d have gone to prison. Famous people get to do whatever the hell they want.

      And I’m sure his “community service” will involve him singing somewhere. Celebrities rarely have to face the consequences for their actions.

    What a load of Crap! I guess this is what wanna be famous people get.

  • ks

    Oh and take his grammy noms away.

    • Gigi

      Then every artist who has ever been busted for drug possession should lose their Grammys too, which is pretty much all of them

        Not really, cuz while Hendrix and The Doors and Zeppelin were changing music, the Grammies were giving awards to Pat Boone and Tony Orlando.

        The year Nirvana released Nevermind, they gave the Album Of The Year award to Tony Bennett.

        Once musicians get off the drugs and start sucking (Aerosmith??), THEN the Grammies start coming…

  • LOL

    The coke belonged to Charlie Sheen.

    A black man arrested for possession of crack cocaine? What a shocker!

    • Tom

      Hes black?

    • Tarik

      He is not Black. He is Puerto Rican and Filipino. Why are you being racist with Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan always in trouble with drugs. Drug abuse is done by all races.

  • Jodi

    He’s so talented – I hope he gets his act together.

  • sam

    First offenders are often given liberal plea deals. If he messes up again like this, it will be a real problem for him, so I hope he takes it seriously.

  • Josh

    Sam is right, almost all counties have a special program for first time drug offenders. The terms very but where I am from getting arrested for anything will make it so the charge stays on your record.

  • Lily

    And he was on the Ellen Show not too long ago acting so sweet and innocent and she just loves him. Do all those TV folks do drugs? How do you rave about and act so cozy-cozy with someone and the next thing you know they’re arrested for coke or some such. It would really embarrass me.

    • Catherine

      Taking drugs doesn’t mean you are a bad person. Everyone can make a mistake.

    I do not even understand how I stopped up here, but I thought this publish was once great. I do not know who you might be however certainly you’re going to a famous blogger should you aren’t already. Cheers!
