    Ray J had a rough start to the weekend.

    The "I Hit It First" singer was busted at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Friday night after allegedly getting into an altercation in the bar area.

    According to the Beverly Hills Police Department, police officers responded to a sexual battery complaint at the hotel where it was alleged that Brandy Norwood's younger brother grabbed a female's butt. It was later determined that no sexual battery had occurred and the "contact was incidental."

    Ray J subsequently agreed to leave the hotel, but when he got to the valet he allegedly "became belligerent with the valets and refused to leave," Beverly Hills Public Information Officer Lieutenant Lincoln Hoshino told E! News in a statement.

    After that, chaos ensued.

    Police took the 33-year-old music artist into custody, put him in a police car, and he allegedly used his feet to shatter the side window of the vehicle. After police took him out of the car and restrained his feet, cops said Ray J "became combative" and spit in one of the officer's faces.

    In addition to getting arrested for trespassing, Ray J was also charged with vandalism, resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.

    Ironically, Ray J's last tweet Friday morning was "Why complicate things?! #Keepitsimple."

    His bail was set at $20,000.
