Chris Brown hopped aboard the Justice Department’s “Con Air” prisoner airline on Thursday to start his trek to Washington D.C. A rep from the U.S Marshals Service confirmed to HipHollywood that the singer was turned over to marshals on Wednesday and he is in their custody, following an extradition hearing in Los Angeles.
A source tells HipHollywood that the singer is doing well and is ready for his April 17 trail. “He’s positive and ready to face the consequences of his past and move forward with the rest of his life,” the insider tells us.
Over the next few days, Brown will be traveling to the East Coast with several prisoners via Con Air. And according to reports, his journey to D.C will be no cake walk. Not only will the 24-year-old be cuffed during his travels, but he will also have several layovers at jails across the country. Brown reportedly will not arrive to D.C until Sunday.
Brown, who is still on probation from the assault of then girlfriend Rihanna, will face a misdemeanor assault charge after allegedly hitting a man in front of the W hotel in October 2013.
On Monday, Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos will face a judge in D.C to request that the charges get dismissed. If judge slams the request, Chris will remain in custody until his April 17th trial. If found guilty, the singer could face up to four years in prison.
