Bruno Mars’ cocaine possession charge will be dismissed after he completes his court-ordered community service.
The Grenade hitmaker was arrested at a hotel in Las Vegas in 2010 after a bathroom attendant allegedly saw a man behaving suspiciously, and he subsequently pleaded guilty to a drugs charge.

The conviction was deferred and the singer was given a year to complete 200 hours of community service and a course of drug education classes.

The case will go back to court on Wednesday and a judge will dismiss the charge as Mars has logged more than 230 hours of community service at a number of charities and completed his classes, according to
