Chris Brown takes a new kind of tour

Chris Brown takes a new kind of tour

Singer Chris Brown is getting no special treatment when it comes to dealing with his legal drama. The “Loyal” singer is heading from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. and he better get comfy, because it could be a really long flight.

Brown was sent to jail in Los Angeles last month after violating his probation - probation he’s still on from beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 – but now he’s on his way across the country. At an extradition hearing on Wednesday, Brown was taken into custody by federal marshals for his upcoming assault trial in Washington D.C. But is he traveling by private jet like he’s used to? Nope. Brown is taking “Con Air,” the U.S. Department of Justice’s prisoner airline system. The trip could take up to two weeks as the plane picks up and drops off inmates at various prisons across the country.

A judge has ordered Chris Brown to be held in jail until his next court hearing. That hearing is currently scheduled for April 23rd, meaning Chris Brown will be behind bars for at least a month. 

Brown was still no probation for viciously beating his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.  He was then arrested again for allegedly punching someone in the face.  Brown went to a rehab facility for anger management.  Last week, he was kicked out of that rehab facility. Now, a judge has decided that he will have to remain behind bars until his next hearing. HLN has reached out to Brown’s attorneys but have not heard back.
