Bruno Mars, formally known to close friends, family, ex-girlfriends, and school teachers as Peter Hernandez, was arrested for cocaine possession at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.
Police were alerted by a hotel bathroom attendant who saw a man with suspicious paraphernalia, in other words, this is how Bruno Mars got caught . A TMZ source reveals that the “Just The Way You Are” singer had 2.6g of cocaine on him. He claimed to having never used drugs before.
Before the arrest, Bruno Mars performed his single, which is no. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 list, at the Hard Rock Cafe & Casino. Fans can expect his debut album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” to hit stores on October 5. The singer, songwriter and “never used drugs before” music producer has collaborated with B.o.B on “Nothin’ on You” and Travis McCoy on “Billionaire,” and co-wrote with Flo Rida for hip hop hit “Right Round.” Bruno Mars will co-headline with Travis McCoy on a European tour that begins in October. I imagine that that this tour between Bruno and Travis will be a narcotic-free environment.
