Singer Chris Brown is on his way to Washington D.C. for a pretrial hearing in an assault case. Brown and his bodyguard are accused of hitting a 20-year old man who was trying to take a picture with Brown.
This is turning into a very complicated legal journey for Brown. On March 18th he was remanded to the Men's Central Jail and ordered to stay there for a month until his upcoming hearing on an allegation of parole violation. The judge in the case said he didn't feel comfortable having Brown be free until trial. This after he spent the prior weekend in jail accused of violating terms of his parole at a local rehab.
The hitch in the legal mechanics here is that Brown just couldn't go to D.C. on his own. He was in jail. And, the judge wouldn't allow his attorney Mark Geragos to take personal custody of him for the trip, so he's essentially being extradited. Federal Marshal's took him into custody today. They took him to a holding cell in San Bernardino to wait for his plane that, according to Marshals our Andrew Gutierrez spoke with, will make stops along the way to pick up other inmates.
It may be a long journey for an unknown outcome in the nation's capitol.
