Singer Ray J denies crimes at Beverly Hills hotel

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — 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 today 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.
