Singer Ray J was arrested Friday in Beverly Hills, California, after wigging out just a bit.

According to a police statement, Beverly Hills Police were dispatched to the Beverly Wilshire Hotel at 7:36 p.m. regarding a person disturbing the peace.

When authorities arrived on the scene, they found Ray J — whose real name is William Ray Norwood Jr. — in the valet area where the hotel staff were trying to conduct a citizen's arrest after Ray J refused to leave the property.

"He subsequently entered the valet area and became belligerent with the valets and refused to leave," according to a statement from the Beverly Hills Police Department.

Police say that when officers tried to take the singer into custody, he kicked out the side window of one of the police cars from inside the vehicle. When officers tried to remove him from the vehicle to restrain his feet, he totally lost it and became violent, spitting into the face of one of the officers.

"He became belligerent and used his feet to shatter the side window of the police vehicle," said the police statement.

The altercation began when a woman at the bar said Ray J grabbed her behind. Police later determined that the contact was an accident.

Ray J was booked for trespassing, private person's arrest, vandalism on a police car, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.

He made bail — set at $20,000 — and was released.

The 33-year-old reality star is due in court on July 25 at the Airport Courthouse, police told Access Hollywood Saturday.

Ray J, the younger brother of singer Brandy, had a brief career as a singer but has had more notoriety as Kim Kardashian's reported partner in a sex tape. He also starred in several VH1 reality shows and will appear in the upcoming reality show Love and Hip Hop: Los Angeles.
