Bruno Mars formally entered a guilty plea in a Las Vegas courtroom on Wednesday (February 16) for a possession of a controlled substance charge, stemming from a 2010 arrest.

According to TMZ, the singer (real name: Peter Gene Hernandez) pleaded guilty to felony cocaine possession charge as part of a plea deal, which will see the charges dismissed if Grammy Award-winning artist stays out of trouble for 12 months.

Mars will be required to complete 8 hours of private counseling and 200 hours of community service with a charitable organization.

He must also pay a $2,000 fine, which he tells TMZ he’ll be paying today.

His lawyer, Blair Berk, told the gossip site that he and his client are “very pleased that the prosecution has agreed to dismiss the charge.”

Mars was arrested in September 2010 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino after a bathroom attendant told security a man was doing coke in the bathroom.
