Bruno Mars takes plea deal in drug bust

LAS VEGAS » Pop star Bruno Mars is taking a plea deal that will get him a fine, probation and eventual dismissal of a felony cocaine possession charge in Las Vegas.

His attorneys and Clark County District Attorney David Roger say the 25-year-old Grammy nominee is due Friday to waive an evidentiary hearing so he can plead guilty in state court.

Mars' real name is Peter Hernandez. Under the plea deal, his case would be dismissed after a $2,000 fine, 200 hours of community service, drug counseling and a year on probation.

The "Just the Way You Are" singer was arrested in September after a Las Vegas nightclub performance. Police said he had 2.6 grams of cocaine.

Defense lawyer Blair Berk says Mars appreciates the opportunity he is getting.

Celebrity website TMZ first reported the deal.
