Upcoming singer Bruno Mars was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada this over the weekend for possession of drugs.
According to reports, Mars was busted in a bathroom by security office Casino early yesterday (September 19th) morning.
Mars was arrested around 1:50 a.m. at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino — where he had performed earlier in the night — for felony possession of 2.6 grams of a “white powdery substance” that tested positive as cocaine. According to the report, a bathroom attendant approached a security officer at the facility to say that there was a man in a bathroom stall who might be using drugs, telling the guard that a male in the bathroom was “taking a really long time.”
The attendant said he observed the suspect in a striped shirt with a “baggy of white powder substance.” The attendant and the security guard approached the suspect as he exited the stall, and the guard ordered Mars to hand over whatever narcotics he had on him. “This is when Hernandez, with his left hand, pulled out a white powder substance, which was consistent with cocaine, from his left-front jeans pocket.”
Bruno Mars, 23, is a featured singer on B.o.B.’s hit single “Nothin’ On You” and Travie McCoy’s latest smash single, “Billionaire.”
His debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans is due in stores October 5th.
