(AllHipHop News) A rep for the U.S. Marshal has confirmed that Chris Brown has been transferred into federal custody to address his legal issues in Washington D.C.
The singer was in a Los Angeles jail for violating the rules in a Malibu rehab center.
The 24 year old is moving to answer to assault charges in the nation's capital.
Chris' lawyer Mark Geragos tried and failed to block the transfer on Tuesday. Last October, the embattled singer was arrested on a felony assault charge.
He's presently serving a five year probationary period for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna.
