Chris Brown has been taken into custody by U.S. marshals and will be transported to Washington, D.C., for an upcoming misdemeanor assault trial, an official said Thursday.
He will be brought to D.C. for pre-trial hearings later this week.
The singer has been in a Los Angeles jail since he was dismissed from a Malibu rehab facility March 17. He had been ordered to the facility after his probation was revoked in the wake of his D.C. arrest.
Brown is facing a misdemeanor assault case in D.C., where he and his bodyguard were accused of punching a 20-year-old Beltsville, Md., man in October. His trial is expected to be held later this month.
