Ray J has reportedly been charged with numerous offences following his arrest at an L.A. hotel on Friday (30th May).
Ray J was arrested following a disturbance at a Los Angeles hotel on Friday (30th May). The incident allegedly turned into a violent altercation with police officers according to a US entertainment website.
Ray J was apprehended by the LAPD at a Los Angeles Hotel.
Ray J, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr., was seemingly apprehended by law enforcement officers after the LAPD received a call from someone inside the Beverly Wilshire Hotel claiming Ray J was causing a commotion within the hotel's bar. TMZ first reported the news.
The staff at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel allegedly told Ray J to leave the bar but he refused and law enforcement were called soon after. It seemed Ray J was in the bar with an unidentified woman. This was reiterated by the statement issued by the LAPD, as Billboard reports, in which they stated "Hotel security requested to make a private persons arrest after repeatedly asking Mr. Norwood to leave."
After officers were called to the scene, Ray J reportedly refused leave quietly and was restrained with handcuffs. Unfortunately, this did little to improve Ray J's mood as he proceeded to kick the window out of a law enforcement vehicle. Ray J also reported spit on an officer during his arrest. The statement, issued by the LAPD, claimed "After the uniform police officers took Mr. Norwood into custody and placed him in the rear of a police vehicle, he became belligerent and used his feet to shatter the side window of the police vehicle."
Ray J, according to TMZ, is currently in custody and is being charged with trespassing, vandalism, resisting arrest, and battery.
