Bruno Mars Speaks Out On Cocaine Bust

Posted: Updated:
MARS

The last year has been a wild ride for Hawaiian musician Bruno Mars (nee Peter Gene Hernandez). The newly minted pop singer has ascended to the heights of fame, penned the hook for Cee-Lo's smash hit "F**k You," picked up seven Grammy nominations and one win, netted triple-platinum sales, and was arrested in Vegas for cocaine possession.

"I'm not gonna preach that I'm a role model," he told GQ in his defense. "I'm a fucking musician! But I've learned people are watching, so don't do nothing stupid." Luckily for Mars, the prosecutor who charged him has a secret of his own, and now everybody "nose" it. Clark County Deputy District Attorney David Charles Schubert was arrested on Saturday for possession of...COCAINE. Apparently the irony was inescapable.
