UPDATE: Chris Brown Now In Federal Custody, U.S. Marshalls to Transport Singer to D.C. Trial

Looks like Chris Brown will have to fly Con Air or something similar to his Washington D.C. trial.

According to PEOPLE, Brown has been transferred from his L.A. County jail cell to San Bernardino County jail, where he will remain in federal custody. The Feds will be transporting Brown to D.C. for pre-trial hearings in an assault case stemming from October 2013 where he was arrested on a felony assault charge.

As we previously reported, Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, made an attempt to block his client’s transfer into U.S. Marshal custody claiming: "to put Chris on a Con Air flight would deprive him of his right to spend necessary time with his lawyer so he can prepare for courtroom battle."

Geragos offered to transport the Grammy winner himself, but his request was denied.

Brown was jailed last month (March 2014) after he was kicked out of a Malibu rehab facility for violating the facility's rules.
