Sentinels’ Valorant Player SicK Arrested Again for Trespassing

Professional Valorant player Hunter “SicK” Mims has been arrested for the second time this year


Former member of the Sentinels roster, SicK, has been retaken into custody only two months after his release from jail. According to the report from George Geddes, SicK has been arrested for criminal trespassing, which is the same charge as before. The news of SicK's second arrest broke out after several days of erratic behavior displayed by the American player on his social media accounts.

SicK’s problematic behaviour started back in mid-February following the VCT 2023 LOCK//IN event. After allegedly not being allowed into the playing arena and the drama regarding his ex-girlfriend, the sixth man of Sentinels appeared to be grappling with severe mental health issues. The comments he made while streaming and on Twitter sparked an immediate concern for his well-being within the esports community. Later, on March 4, news surfaced that Hunter got arrested for unauthorized entry at a Ferrari dealership. The player spent 11 days in custody before being released on March 16, after his organization, Sentinels, posted a $5,000 bond on his behalf.

The situation was quiet for around three weeks; however, on May 5, the 24-year-old player resumed posting on Twitter, with some of his tweets suggesting drug use. His latest stream on Twitch only strengthened the concerns among the public that the former Masters Champion is still dealing with mental health challenges.

Many of his colleagues have taken to Twitter to support him during these difficult times. Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan tweeted about the situation and said that SicK “isn’t himself” right now. He then urged people to be more understanding towards his former teammate.

It has been a year since SicK last played an official match. He started the 2023 VCT season as the sixth man for Sentinels. However, following his first arrest, he was suspended from the roster and replaced by Jimmy “marved” Nguyen.
