Bruno Mars Charged With Cocaine Possession

Bruno Mars has officially been charged with cocaine possession.

TMZ reports that the singer was charged with one felony count of possession of a controlled substance following his cocaine arrest last month in Las Vegas.

Mars was arrested at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on September 19 -- after a bathroom attendant told hotel security that Mars took a "baggie of white powdery substance" into one of the stalls.

If convicted, Mars could spend up to four years behind bars and faces up to a $5,000 fine.

That’s a little scary! We hope he’s learned his lesson because his career is really taking off! We’re looking forward to seeing Bruno on Saturday Night Live on October 9!
