Chris Brown has just been scooped up by federal marshals on what will be one of the longest journeys of his life. Sources connected with the case claim Chris is on his way to a federal holding facility in San Bernardino to begin his long trip to Washington D.C. In D.C., he will stand trial for assault. Later today Chris will board a airplane — guarded by U.S. Marshals and appropriately restrained. A NON-stop flight! There are so many stops he probably won’t get there until Sunday. These flights go through Oklahoma, with stops along the way to pick up other prisoners. Chris will be in D.C. for a hearing Monday where his lawyer, Mark Geragos, will try to get the charges dismissed because he believes prosecutors inappropriately used the grand jury to gain an unfair advantage in the criminal case. Crazy thing is, if Geragos loses, Chris will sit in a D.C. jail facility until his D.C. trial begins on April 17.
