Bruno Mars Tests Positive For Cocaine, Arrested In Las Vegas (Mug Shot Photo)
Singer Bruno Mars has officially been charged with one count of felony possession of a controlled substance. On September nineteenth, after a performance at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s Wasted Space nightclub in Las Vegas, Nevada, a bathroom attendant notified security that Bruno Mars entered a bathroom stall with a “baggie of a white, powdery substance” and was taking too long.
Bruno tried to skip on out, but security stopped him on his way out the stall and asked him to reveal what was in his pockets. The police detained the “Nothin’ on You” singer and questioned him.
Police reports say that the bag contained 2.6 gm and he tested positive for cocaine. Bruno has a clean record so far, so the chances of Mars doing jail time are slim to none.
It’s seems that the singer made a bad choice at the wrong moment and that’s during the peak of his career. Currently Bruno Mars’ song “Just the Way You Are” is top on the Billboards Hot 100 charts. Hopefully the singer cleans up his act and gets it together before more problems are waiting in line for him.
As for what Bruno Mars has to say for himself, he told police he has never taken drugs before. Guess he learned that line from the hotel heiress.
Meanwhile, it looks like he may be lucky as he may only get probation, according to Nevada police.
Bruno Mars is due back in court on November 18.
