Tevin Biles-Thomas certainly did not go down the same path as his sister and now it has him possibly headed straight to prison for the remainder of his life.
The 24-year-old brother of Simone Biles has formally been charged with multiple counts of murder in a New Year’s Eve shooting in Cleveland, Ohio.
Tevin was arrested Thursday at Fort Stewart in Georgia in the fatal shooting Dec. 31 at an Airbnb rental property that left three men dead and two others injured, according to a joint statement from the Cleveland Division of Police and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.

“The statement said an “uninvited group” entered the house and “an altercation ensued” between them and the invited guests. The fight led to gunfire.
Delvante Johnson, 19, and Toshaun Banks, 21, were pronounced dead at the scene, and Devaughn Gibson, 23, was brought to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Biles-Thomas, who is on active duty with the Army, has been charged with six counts of murder, three counts of voluntary manslaughter, five counts of felonious assault and one count of perjury, according to prosecutors.
“The relentless persistence of Cleveland Police Homicide detectives helped secure an indictment in this case,” O’Malley said in a statement. “It is through their hard work that we can begin to seek justice for these victims.”
Biles, 22, a four-time gold medal champion on the US gymnastics team, hasn’t directly commented on her brother’s alleged involvement in the crime, but she did send out a cryptic tweet that indicated that she needed some space.
