Bruno Mars Arrested on Drug Charges

Bruno Mars, real name Peter Hernandez, was arrested on Sunday in Las Vegas.

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, Sgt. John Sheahan said Mars was arrested at 2:40 a.m.

Sheahan said Hard Rock security confronted him in a bathroom and discovered him with narcotics.

He had performed Saturday night at the Hard Rock. Mars had tweeted his fans asking them to come watch him perform. Guess it was one heck of a performance!

More details coming soon...

UPDATE: TMZ reports that Mars was caught at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino after security confronted him in a bathroom and allegedly found him in possession of narcotics.

He reportedly had 2.6 grams of cocaine on him. Bad boy, Bruno!

UPDATE#2: Sources tell TMZ that it was the bathroom attendant who squealed on Bruno. According to the police report, the attendant told hotel security "there was a man in the bathroom stall with possibly a man using drugs."

The employee said he could "see a male in a striped red shirt with a baggy of white powder substance" and told Bruno to "give over whatever narcotics he had." According to the report, Bruno then "pulled out a white powder substance, which was consistent with cocaine, from his left-front jeans pocket."

Cops say Bruno "admitted he did a foolish thing and has never used drugs before."
