Chris Brown arrives in Washington via ‘Con Air’ to face assault charge.
The singer’s “Con Air” flight landed in the D.C. area, and he was escorted by U.S. marshals to a local jail where he will be locked up until his assault trial later this month, according to a Marshals Service spokesman.
Breezy was chained at his ankles, waist and arms much of the time since marshals took him into custody from the Los Angeles County sheriff last Wednesday.
Brown’s lawyer failed to convince a judge at a hearing Monday that his assault charge in Washington should be dropped because of prosecutors’ misconduct. Judge Patricia Wynn rejected the argument by Mark Geragos that the U.S. attorneys abused the grand jury process in preparation for Brown’s trial.
Although the charge is a misdemeanor and is unlikely to carry jail time for Brown if he is convicted, the arrest has put him behind bars because of his probation for an attack on ex-girlfriend Rihanna five years ago.
