Ray J faces sexual assault charge after bender
You'd remember him as the guy who released the 2007 sex tape with ex-girlfriend of five years, Kim Kardashian.
Ray J, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr, was hit with four charges on Tuesday (July 22), prosecutors revealed.
The One Wish singer was charged with sexual battery on an unidentified woman, vandalism of a police car, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest, the misdemeanor complaint filed Monday, reported New York Daily News (NYDN).
The charges come after an incident almost two months ago (May 30) when Sexy Can I singer allegedly brushed up against a woman’s backside at the hotel bar at Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Prosecutors claim he willfully touched the woman’s "intimate part" for the "specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification and sexual abuse" but when police responded at the scene and initially let him leave on his own after they determined "the touching was accidental."
But he ruined that opportunity to get away from the authorities shortly after.
He had allegedly become "belligerent with staff and spat on officers" and even "shattered a police car window after he was handcuffed and stuffed in the back of the cruiser", claimed the publication.
TMZ reported that the singer told them that he’d become "claustrophobic" and kicked out the window.
Meanwhile, fans have taken the opportunity to share some sarcastic comments on Twitter.
According to the NYDN, Ray J is due for arraignment Friday in Los Angeles.
