Singer Bruno Mars, 25, arrested in a casino restroom last September, allegedly with 2.6 grams of cocaine in the left front pocket of his jeans. However, the prosecutor’s office confirmed Friday that Mars, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, could avoid prosecution for a drug arrest if he stays out of trouble for a year, gets drug counseling, does 200 hours of community service and pays a $2,000 fine.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper, the deal provides for the “deferred adjudication”  of the felony drug charge so the district attorney will not pursue the charges for 12 months as long as the singer complies with terms of their deal.
