Chris Brown’s been turned over to the feds

chris brown

Oh, Chris Brown. Sweet, peaceful, law-abiding and not-at-all violent man that he is just can’t seem to catch a break this time around. You see, after he was kicked out of rehab last month for breaking several rules, he was thrown in jail due to, you know, violating his probation yet again. He’s due to stay there until April 23rd, and while he was trying to buy his way out of prison, that little tactic didn’t work this time and in fact, the US Marshal has actually taken over his custody and will be putting him on a federal prison plane to head to DC to stand trial for the assault he performed there.

Chris Brown has just been picked up by federal marshals on what will be one of the longest journeys across the country since the prop plane era … TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the case tell us Chris is on his way to a federal holding facility in San Bernardino to begin his long trip to Washington D.C. … where he will stand trial for assault.

Later today Chris will board a airplane — guarded by U.S. Marshals and appropriately restrained — but the flight is NOT a non-stop.  In fact, we’re told there are so many stops he probably won’t get there until Sunday.

We’re told all of these flights go through Oklahoma, with stops along the way to pick up other prisoners.

I know it’s not particularly kind to partake in schaudenfreude, but oh man, do I love this news. It’s slightly over-the-top, but somehow, considering Chris Brown is the subject, it seems just fitting, doesn’t it?

Chris Brown is being turned over to the US Marshal

FFN_RIJ_BILLBOARD_ARRIVALS_051913_51103721

Chris Brown has been trying to worm his way out of prison by any means necessary, and while a judge has ordered him to stay put until at least April 23rd, now it seems things might be taking an even more serious turn, and he may in fact be handed over to the US Marshal to stand trial in Washington DC.

The judge in the D.C. assault case has signed an order — obtained by TMZ — commanding the honchos at L.A. County Jail to release Chris to the U.S. Marshal.

The Rihanna judge has already ordered Chris to stay in the slammer until his April 17 D.C. assault trial, but the judge never determined how he would get there.

Even though the D.C. judge imposed the order Wednesday … it’s not a done deal. The Rihanna judge must sign off before the U.S. Marshal is able to grab the singer.

Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, opposes the order and says Chris is more than willing to voluntarily fly to D.C.

Is the judge in this case being a little over the top? Probably, but it seems – just like the rest of us – he’s tired of Chris getting away with blue murder, as the saying goes, and wants to put him in his place. Chris clearly feels the law doesn’t apply to him, so I’m not really against a little extra heat being put on him so that he realizes he’s not in charge here.

What will happen in this case, no one knows. I can guess – which is that he’ll get off as per usual – but I sorta hope I’m wrong!

Chris Brown Thinks His Charges Should Be Thrown Out

Chris Brown's 24th Birthday Party at 1Oak in Las Vegas

Chris Brown thinks he should be a free man.  Due to a court technicality.  TMZ reports:

Chris Brown says prosecutors in his Washington D.C. assault case screwed him over by unlawfully getting a sneak peek of witnesses … so he wants the charges thrown out.

Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, says prosecutors had no right to take Brown’s case before the grand jury.  He says in his legal docs the U.S. Attorney had already decided to reduce the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor assault.

Geragos alleges the ONLY reason a grand jury was convened was to get a preview of how the witnesses in their case would fare under oath.  In other words, Geragos says prosecutors used the grand jury for a dry run, and that’s absolutely an egregious abuse of power.

A judge has yet to rule.

Everybody has the right to a fair trial.  I just really hope that some dimwit handling the prosecution didn’t screw something up so this guy gets off on a technicality.  I’m just not a fan.  But yes- he is entitled to a fair trial.  Ughh.

Chris Brown feels like a “caged animal” in jail

FFN_Billboard_Awards_RIA_051913_51103588

I sorta thought the whole point of being in jail was to experience punishment for repeated deviant/illegal behavior. You’re put in a cell – which probably feels somewhat like a “cage” – and it’s not meant to be a pleasant experience at all. Hence the reason you’re in prison and not behind bars. Apparently no one gave that memo to Chris Brown, as he’s still trying to get free ASAP since prison is making him “feel like an animal”.

You’d think the photos of Rihanna‘s battered face would have left an impression … on him.  But apparently it took a few days in solitary to shake Chris to the core.

One source — who recently spoke with Brown on the phone — tells us, Chris says he feels like “a caged animal,” calling it “the worst experience of my life.”

We’re told Chris has been spending his time behind bars working out and writing music.  He’s telling people on the phone, “I’ll never f*** up again.”

Yeah, I’m sure that’s the truth.

Chris Brown thrown in jail for five weeks – could turn into four years!

Chris Brown's 24th Birthday Party at 1Oak in Las Vegas

Chris Brown simply cannot stay out of trouble. On Friday he was kicked out of his second rehab facility. Almost immediately after leaving rehab, he was thrown in jail by the judge overseeing his case. Chris stayed in jail over the weekend, until yesterday when his lawyer arranged a hearing on Monday to figure out if Chris could do house arrest until his hearing next month. The judge refused to let Chris out of jail – and so now he has to stay behind bars until the end of April!

So why was Chris kicked out of rehab? Apparently he broke several rules, including one that barred him from being around – or touching – women at the rehab facility.

Chris Brown was thrown out of the Malibu rehab facility Friday for violating 3 internal rules … including a special rule imposed specifically on him — STAY AT LEAST 2 FEET FROM THE WOMEN. Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the rehab facility imposed the 2-foot rule because of the Rihanna case — specifically, that he beat her. The people who run the facility imposed the highly unusual rule, and we’re told Chris violated it by touching elbows and hands with a woman.

As for the 2 other violations, we’re told Chris left the facility last week on an authorized outing, but when he returned he was told to submit to a random drug test and he refused. Our sources say he later took the test and the results were negative, but the initial refusal was a violation of rules. And the third violation … the facility claims Chris made a mockery of rehab during a group session with some harsh comments.

Our sources say Chris was also in some sort of sexual encounter with a woman at the facility at the beginning of the month, but for some reason that is not part of the basis for booting him.

TMZ broke the story … Chris was arrested Friday because he violated the order of the judge in the Rihanna case … the judge required him to stay in rehab for anger management until mid-April, when his Washington D.C. assault case ran its course.

He’s currently being held in jail without bail. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court Monday with Brown in an attempt to get him freed. We’re guessing Geragos will ask for house arrest until the D.C. trial.

I think it’s the right thing to keep him behind bars – what’s the point in letting him out, he’s just NOT getting it!

Maybe 5 weeks in jail will help scare him straight. With the possibility of going to jail for four years staring him down, maybe he’ll realize this is actually important.

Bieber – you paying attention?
