Bruno Mars will have to wait a bit longer to resolve his outstanding cocaine charges. 

The 25-year-old singer’s trial, originally scheduled to take place yesterday (Nov. 18) in Las Vegas, has been postponed, according to attorney David Chesnoff.

Mars—born Peter Hernandez—was accused of possessing 2.6 grams of cocaine when he was arrested following a Sept. 19 performance at a Vegas nightspot. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted on the controlled substance charge. 

Still riding the success of his hit single “Just The Way You Are,” the Hawaii native is due back in court Dec. 14. —John Kennedy
