Wait a minute, ain’t that Brandy’s brother? Yes, William Ray Norwood Jr. is in a lot of hot water. The Los Angeles County District Attorney threw the book at Ray J from that arrest at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel back in May. The charges include sexual battery, resisting arrest, assault and battery and vandalism.
Back in May police were called to the hotel bar after Ray J allegedly made contact with a woman’s butt and he became belligerent with hotel security causing them to do a citizen’s arrest and calling the LAPD. Once the LAPD arrived and Ray J was arrested he allegedly kicked out the back window of the police vehicle and spat in an officer’s face. At the time they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him with any sexual assault, they claimed the touching of the woman’s butt was incidental, but he was booked for trespassing, vandalism, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.
Now the sexual assault that Ray is being charged with isn’t for grabbing the woman’s butt, but for grabbing the woman’s breast. Yes, her breast. Law enforcement says they have found “new evidence” supporting the claim that Ray grabbed the woman’s breast in front of witnesses. The lobby and the bar of the hotel is full of cameras so I’m thinking they may have film evidence of the assault. Nevertheless Ray J’s arraignment is set for Friday and he’s not required to appear in court.
None of this would be happening if Whitney was still alive… I’m just saying.
