News4 has confirmed that the singer, Chris Brown has been taken into custody by the US marshals. He would be brought to Washington DC later this week for trial.Chris Brown’s legal team’s last ditch effort to transport him personally to Washington D.C. for his misdemeanor assault trial has been denied and Chris is headed to D.C. on Con Air which is a prisoner aircraft with other criminals. Not like he’s a criminal though.
Chris Brown has just been picked up by federal marshals on what will be one of the longest journeys across the country since the prop plane era … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the case tell us Chris is on his way to a federal holding facility in San Bernardino to begin his long trip to Washington D.C. where he will stand trial for assault.
Later today Chris will board a airplane — guarded by U.S. Marshals and appropriately restrained — but the flight is NOT a non-stop. In fact, we’re told there are so many stops he probably won’t get there until Sunday.We’re told all of these flights go through Oklahoma, with stops along the way to pick up other prisoners.
Breezy will be in D.C. for a hearing on Monday where his lawyer, Mark Geragos, will try to get the charges dismissed because he believes the prosecutors inappropriately used the grand jury to gain an unfair advantage in the criminal case.The bad thing is If Geragos loses, Chris will sit in a D.C. jail facility until his D.C. trial kicks off on April 17.
