    BEVERLY HILLS, California — 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 Tuesday 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.
