TMZ is reporting that R&B singer Ray J has been charged with 10 crimes stemming from a May arrest. One of the charges from the drunken incident alleges that Ray committed sexual battery—a claim that the Los Angeles Police Department disagrees with.
The police subdued and arrested a drunken and rowdy Ray J after he was told to leave after brushing up against a woman at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. He started to go on a rampage outside the hotel where he was arrested; he kicked through the window of a cop car and spit on an officer during the arrest. Ray J reportedly told TMZ that he kicked the window out because he is "claustrophobic."
The LAPD is disputing the sexual battery charge because the contact between Ray and the woman in question was incidental and reportedly not intentional. The D.A. has stood firm in his ruling of the misdemeanor battery charge along with charging him with four counts of resisting arrest, three counts of assault and battery and two counts of vandalism.
