Singer Ray J denies crimes at Beverly Hills hotelAugust 19, 2014 @ 6:54 pm
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Singer Ray J has pleaded not guilty to groping a woman at a Beverly Hills hotel bar and resisting arrest afterward.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say Ray J -- whose legal name is William Ray Norwood -- entered the plea Tuesday to misdemeanor charges of sexual battery, vandalism, battery on a police officer and resisting a peace officer.
He's scheduled to return to court for a preliminary hearing Aug. 28.
Raj J was arrested May 30 after a woman said he groped her at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Police say he refused to leave the bar when they arrived, became unruly and used his feet to shatter a patrol car window after being taken into custody.
Ray J is the brother of singer-actress Brandy Norwood.
