The incident comes days after SicK was embroiled in online drama with his former girlfriend and Sentinels while in Brazil for VCT LOCK//IN. The North American player has dealt with mental health issues in the past. In May 2022, SicK took time off from the Sentinels Valorant roster and did not play in the last-chance qualifier for Valorant Champions 2022 after also missing the last two weeks of VCT Stage 2 Challengers.

He later came back to streaming and became a substitute player for Sentinels during the offseason. He and Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo were the only two players to remain on the Sentinels roster from the 2022 season.

SicK has not played a professional match since his May break. Pro players and Valorant community members have expressed concern for the player as his social media presence has become more erratic.

SicK faces a steep fine or a jail term of up to 180 days, according to The Law Office of Andrew Williams. Sentinels have not made a public statement about the incident or the player’s situation.

SicK will also be “internally suspended” by Sentinels and the team is looking for a new sixth player to join the Valorant roster, according to a follow-up report by Dot Esports. He will also have to complete “training” following his release from jail.
