Chris Brown is in federal custody, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Marshals confirms to People, as the singer's latest legal troubles move to Washington D.C. The federal authorities will transport Brown to the nation's capitol for pre-trial hearings in an assault case, NBC News reports. Brown was in jail in Los Angeles after being ejected from a Malibu rehab facility on March 14 for violating the facility's rules. The singer's lawyer, Mark Geragos, had attempted Tuesday to block his transfer into U.S. Marshal custody, claiming that it would inhibit him from conferring with Brown prior to the trial, the Los Angeles Times reports. »
