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.

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.

Now here's the thing.  If Geragos loses, Chris will sit in a D.C. jail facility until his D.C. trial kicks off on April 17.

Completely unnecessary, but it's board "AN airplane," not "A." Anyhow, lock this douchebag up and throw away the key.

Chris Brown is being treated more harsher than others and I'm ashamed of our a judicial system. He deserves to be released and given a chance to be free and put this behind him. Hang I'm there love we are praying for you. Be strong!

I think its a complete shame that Chris can't live. He slaps Rihanna around the car now his WHOLE world is over? People in my opinion are now picking on him. Lindsey Lohan white ass wasn't in jail for 2 weeks. Hardly did any of her community service and always had a damn excuse. I'm not even a die-hard Chris Brown fan but Im seeing right is right and wrong is wrong. I believe the whole rehab **** was a set-up. First of all most women love this guy who is going to stay 2-feet from him. Also, wtf kind of rule is that to make for a ****ing place where people are supposed to be recovering for addictions. It was all a set-up. News for the courts Chris Brown still making hella money no matter what he got it. I feel bad for him. They are trying to make him out to be a freaking monster.

He is a stupid, angry, woman beating, self absorbed, POS. He deserves no special treatment and he belongs in jail with the other animals.
