Valorant pro player for Sentinels Hunter ‘SicK’ Mims has been released from jail following his second arrested this year for alleged criminal trespassing.

Sentinels player SicK was arrested for the second time this year just three months after being let out of jail following a previous incident. As first reported by Valorant journalist George Geddes, SicK was arrested again on May 8 and was released on May 9.

According to the Collin County judicial records, SicK was arrested for Class B Criminal Trespassing, much the same as his first arrest.

SicK was initially arrested on March 4 following an altercation at a car dealership and was charged with criminal trespassing. His bond, set at $5,000, was posted by esports organization Sentinels, who also paid for his sister to fly into Dallas to help with his release, according to Dot Esports.

His second arrest comes amid a flurry of worrying posts on social media. SicK had been acting erratically online for the past few days, both on Twitter and while live on Twitch. Seemingly streaming under the influence, he appeared with slurred speech and mercurial behavior against his own chat.

This has led to former teammates of SicK asking fans to not pay attention to his actions. Shahzeb “ShahZaM” Khan pleaded with fans to ignore him, saying that SicK “isn’t himself”. And on stream, he revealed he had been trying to reach out to SicK to help him out of his current predicament.

Following SicK’s first stint in jail, Sentinels moved the player to the bench and suspended him. “Our goal is to support Hunter during this difficult moment,” Sentinels CEO Rob Moore said. It was due to this situation the org had to look for a more suitable sixth player for its Valorant lineup, eventually landing former OpTic Gaming star Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen.

SicK has now been released from his second stint in confinement and returned to Twitter, saying he will stream sometime soon.

SicK seems to be taking things in stride and joking that he is “a menace to society!!” but it is still not clear what the consequences will be for this most recent arrest.
