The Beverly Hills sergeant who claimed in court papers this week he was reassigned after claiming a fellow officer misconducted the investigation of Whitney Houston's death a year ago may have a new ally in singer Ray J.

Singer Ray J was outside of the Houston's hotel room where police and emergency personnel gathered after the award-winning singer's body was discovered last January, TMZ reported.

Sources told TMZ that Ray J angrily confronted officers after hearing a "disrespectful comment" about Houston followed by loud laughter that had to be restrained. Ray J, the brother of R&B singer and actress Brandy Norwood, was reportedly dating Houston at the time of her death.

The report seems to give some credibility to charges by former Beverly Hills SWAT supervisor Sgt. Brian Weir, who said Beverly Hills Det. Sgt. Terry Nutall disturbed the investigation scene by lifting up the sheet that covered Houston to peek at her body and then say, "Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?"

Weir said he was removed as SWAT supervisor and his position with the department's K-9 unit after he made the complaint against Nutall.

Beverly Hills Police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino disputed the claim, according to NBC News. Hoshino said that Nutall, who is not a lieutenant, was the sergeant on duty in the detective's division the night Houston died.  

"He would be expected to respond to that type of incident and his supervisor was fully aware that he went to the scene," Hoshino said. He added that he did not know of any "inappropriate behavior or any inappropriate comments. We stand behind the investigation 100 percent, including the conclusion from the coroner’s office."

An associate of Houston found the singer in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton unresponsive on Feb. 11, 2012. The Los Angeles County coroner ruled that Houston, 48, died of accidental drowning, with cocaine use and heart disease as contributing factors.
