R&B singer and actress Brandy’s little brother, Ray J. (pictured) was reportedly arrested on Friday night and now faces charges of vandalism, trespassing, resisting arrest and battery of a police officer, after he allegedly was at the center of a nasty confrontation with Beverly Hills police at an upscale hotel, according to US Magazine.
Police records indicate that they were tipped off about a ruckus at the famed Beverly Wilshire Hotel that involved Ray J. The former reality star and sometimes recording artist was reportedly asked to leave by the hotel staff, after he was accused of grabbing a woman’s backside. When police arrived on the scene, the conversation that took place among the officers, an unidentified woman, and performer allegedly escalated to the point where tempers flared. even though investigators determined the contact was “incidental” and there was no sexual battery involved.
Ray J. allegedly behaved belligerently toward officers, so they handcuffed and escorted him to their squad car, where he was placed in the back seat. Once Ray J., who catapulted to fame back in 2007 after he and Kim Kardashian made a sex tape, was seated in the squad car’s rear, he allegedly was so upset by his arrest that he kicked out the vehicle’s side window. The 33-year-old’s antics did not allegedly stop with the act of vandalism, though, he then reportedly spat in the face of an officer to boot.
Bail for the man who was linked to songstress Whitney Houston right before her death was set at $20,000. Ray J. was released from jail on Friday night and is awaiting arraignment.
