Stall Tactics

After all that, someone had to pick up Paris Hilton’s slack.

According to a report from Metro, an officer was called to the Hard Rock Hotel around 1:50 a.m. Sept. 19 when a bathroom attendant said a man in a stall was taking too long. Officer Kenneth Ruzicka allegedly saw singer Bruno Mars, born Peter Hernandez, in the stall with a baggy of white powder (Gum! It was totally gum!) and confronted him as he left the bathroom. When Ruzicka asked Mars what was going on, he “admitted he did a foolish thing and has never used drugs before.”

That’s how most people start using drugs, isn’t it? Alone in a public bathroom at 2 a.m.? The powder tested positive for cocaine. It totally wasn’t his purse, though.
