He is scheduled to return to court for a preliminary hearing August 28.
The singer was arrested on May 30 after a woman claimed he grabed her behind at a bar at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Police say Ray J 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 former boyfriend of late Whitney Houston and the younger brother of singer-actress Brandy Norwood and had a brief singing career and starred with his sister in a reality show based on their family life.
