This story totally hums of Con Air.

Chris Brown was transferred from a Los Angeles jail into a holding facility in San Bernardino yesterday (03.04.14) where he'll then be escorted to Washington DC later this week for an upcoming trial.

The singer, who was jailed last month after violating his probation (mainly for "rubbing elbows" with a woman) which was linked to his 2009 conviction, is expected to board the plane later today (04.04.14), but he'll have to make multiple stops - including one in Oklahoma - so that to marshals can pick up other prisoners (like Nic Cage) on the way.

According to TMZ, Chris is not expected to arrive in Washington DC until Sunday - so that's like two days on a plane with prisoners. Fun times - and his lawyer Mark Geragos is due to appear in front of the judge on Monday in the hope of having the charges against Chris dropped.

Chris is expected to appear in court on April 17th after being charged with misdemeanour assault following a fight outside a hotel in October last year.

If Mr Geragos fails to have the charges dropped, Chris will be forced to remain in jail until the case later this month.
