Singer Bruno Mars is on top of the world these days with his songs all over the airwaves and 7 nominations for next months Grammy’s. To stay on top of the world he has agreed to cut a deal with Las Vegas prosecutors that will keep him out of jail.
Under terms of the deal Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, will appear in court on Feb. 4 and plead guilty, at which point he’ll pay a fine of $2,000, serve one year probation and agree to 200 hours of community service, along with drug counseling.
After completing all record court mandated requirements Mars will have his record wiped clean.
The deal comes after Mars was arrested on Sept. 19 at Hard Rock, where an employee saw him with a bag of cocaine.
If Mars had been convicted he could have received up to four years in jail with a felony possession charge.
