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.

We all gotta admit that punk that ran on his bus in Washington was asking for it and there should be no case. On a side note, if brown had a good lawyer, he should have called it self defense.

I'm not a Chris fan by any means, but I cannot believe that he is being transported across the country to be tried for a misdemeanor. I don't think they would do that to an ordinary Joe Blow off the street. It's not as if he were a bank robber or a murderer. This is star treatment gone wrong.

For all of you are going on about him being a woman beater and he needs to go to jail....can we please be realistic please. I hate that he hit Rhianna. It's not acceptable. BUT if every man who hit a woman did jail time they would be building a whole lot more prisons! Rarely does an abuser actually go to jail. Just think about your rant.
