Looks like Bruno Mars dodged the "Grenade" this time. The seven-time Grammy nominee, 25, struck a plea deal with the Clark County District Attorney in court Friday, TMZ reports.

He pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance -- stemming from his September arrest in Las Vegas last September -- but the charge will be wiped from his record if he stays out of trouble for 12 months.

Mars, who will also have to complete 200 hours of community service, was busted at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino September 19 with 2.6 grams of a substance believed to be cocaine.

He is due back in court February 14.
