Chris Brown

Con Air to D.C.

Now Boarding

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.

Not to excuse his behavior...... But I would have never moved to Cali after the Rhianna incident too much poison there. He should've layed low because people \ the public are not forgiving. As long as he was causing attention to him self the more he gave them a reason. Who are your managers Chris?????? Hope it works out!! & get help ....& find some good advice with great direction.

Get over it Geragos. You're old, you've lost your edge and you're still using old strategies. Move over and let the young sharp lawyers take over. Chris Brown is about the right speed for you. Maybe you can get Lilo next.
