Former reality star, singer, and singer Brandy’s little bro Ray J (pictured) has reportedly been charged with 10 criminal misdemeanors by the L.A. County D.A. in connection with a boozy altercation in the bar at the posh Beverly Wilshire Hotel that took place in May, according to TMZ.
Ray J, whose actual name is William Ray Norwood, was charged with the misdemeanors, after he allegedly “inappropriately” brushed up against a woman’s backside at the hotel’s bar. When officers were summoned, they allowed the 33-year-old singer to leave the scene once an investigation concluded that the accusations were meritless.
However, instead of leaving the scene quietly, Ray J, who was reportedly intoxicated, reportedly caused a ruckus and became combative not only with hotel staff but with police as well. He allegedly spat on officers and demolished a patrol car window, after being cuffed and escorted in to the rear of the vehicle.
The sometimes-actor told TMZ later that the reason he kicked out the patrol car window was because he felt “claustrophobic.”
Besides the misdemeanor battery charge, Ray J, who is perhaps best known for his 2007 sex tape with Hollywood’s “It” girl Kim Kardashian, is also facing 3 counts of assault and battery, 4 counts of resisting arrest, and 2 counts of vandalism.
