LOS ANGELES, May 31 (UPI) -- Ray J, the singer and television personality who co-starred in Kim Kardashian's 2003 sex tape, was arrested Friday night after an alleged confrontation with police officers at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 33-year-old "I Hit It First" singer, whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr., has been charged with with vandalism, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.

Police said in a statement that officers arrived at the swanky hotel to respond to a woman's claim that Norwood had grabbed her backside at the hotel bar.

Police decided that the alleged assault was the result of accidental contact, but asked Norwood to leave the bar.

"He subsequently entered the valet area and became belligerent with the valets and refused to leave," police said.

When officers took him into custody, Norwood allegedly "used his feet to shatter the side window of the police vehicle."

He was released on $20,000 bail.
