Con Air to D.C.

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.

Poor Chris.... He has been arrested a dozen or so times and has never gone to trial. I guess it's time to pay the piper. No way to buy your way out of this A-hole.

Cameron Poe: They somehow managed to get every creep and freak in the universe onto this one plane. And then somehow managed to let them take it over. And then somehow managed to stick us right smack in the middle.

'...a airplane...'    

"Later today Chris will board a airplane..." Really? Can he core a apple too? Astonishing editorial incompetence. C'mon Harvey, hire me. We met in the CNN elevator once. This is embarrassing.

The thought of Chris on a 3-day prison flight makes me laugh. Thanks for brightening my day TMZ!

In an alternate universe, wouldn't it be nice to see flight #370 land in DC, replacing these s***? If only.
