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 He had been ordered to the facility after his probation was revoked in the wake of his D.C. arrest.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.

    They need to pick up Justin Beiber criminal a$$ and teach him the same lessons they think they are doing to Chris Brown! To bad the heir of the Dupont fortune who raped a 3 year old isn’t receiving the same treatment.

      That is because he is white and he is so called privileged because they feel sorry for him. Big fat nasty trailer park looking white boy.

    We need more black lawyers! I’m tired of seeing these old white wrinkled men who could care less about Chris because they want to see him fail! But yet racist pale dogs like Mitt Romney’s son adopts a black baby like they love black people so much.
