The brother of Olympic gymnast Simone Biles was nearly attacked in an Ohio courtroom after a judge acquitted him of triple murder on Wednesday.
Tevin Biles-Thomas was accused of a New Year’s Eve 2018 shooting at a Airbnb house that killed three people, Johnson, 19, Toshaun Banks, 21, and Devaughn Gibson, 23.
The courtroom erupted after Judge Joan Synenberg issued her ruling at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland.
A woman rushed toward Biles-Thomas and yelled, “I’m going to kill you.”
“You have to be f—-ng kidding me… “He killed my baby! You know he killed my baby!”
Three sheriff’s deputies tackled the woman before she could reach the defendant.
“We get it, she’s angry. She was led to believe Mr. Biles was guilty, when he wasn’t, and she reacted like a mother. We don’t fault her for that,” Joseph Patituce, the defense attorney representing Biles-Thomas, told Fox 8 Cleveland.
