LAS VEGAS— Hawaii-born singer-songwriter Bruno Mars has had his Las Vegas court appearance for a cocaine charge postponed.

Attorney David Chesnoff told The Associated Press the 25-year-old "Just the Way You Are" singer did not have to appear in person Thursday in a Las Vegas courtroom.

Mars is due back in court Dec. 14.

Mars' real name is Peter Hernandez. He's accused of having 2.6 grams of cocaine when he was arrested after a Sept. 19 performance at a Las Vegas nightclub.

He could face up to four years in prison if convicted on the possession of a controlled substance charge.

The former child entertainer in Waikiki moved to Los Angeles in 2002. The graduate of Roosevelt High School began his career at age 4 as an Elvis impersonator.
