Chris Brown is in federal custody, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Marshals confirms 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. The singer was taken to San Bernardino County jail, where he awaits transport to D.C. Geragos offered to transport the singer himself, but authorities removed Brown from his L.A. cell as the motion was filed, says The Times. Brown, 24, was on probation in October when he got into a fight outside of the W Hotel in D.C. and was arrested on a felony assault charge.

The Look at Me Now singer had been sentenced to five years of probation, six months of community labor and a yearlong domestic violence class after being convicted for felony battery for assaulting Rihanna in 2009, who was his girlfriend at the time.
