Community service

Bruno Mars has avoided a conviction for possessing cocaine after completing more than 200 hours of community service. Bruno was arrested in September 2010 after he was found with 2.6 grams of the substance in the toilets of Las Vegas's Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. He pleaded guilty in January 2011, saying that "he did a very foolish thing and has never used drugs before".
He was ordered to complete 200 hours of community service — but exceeded his quota by more than 30 hours. At the time the judge also ruled that Bruno should pay a fine of £1,300 and attend drug education classes. He could have faced up to four years in jail if convicted.

His lawyer Blair Berk said: "Bruno is very appreciative he is being given this opportunity as a first offender not to suffer any conviction and instead to have his charge dismissed. He is taking all of this quite seriously."
