Sentinels To Reportedly Suspend SicK Following Arrest


As per reports, Sentinels is set to suspend SicK following his arrest in Dallas, Texas for criminal trespassing.
Sentinels has reportedly started searching for a replacement sixth player and Marved is currently the leading prospect.
SicK has been held on the count of 'Class B Misdemeanor' against a bond of $5,000 USD.

Times are hard for the North American Valorant player Hunter “SicK” Mims with everything going from bad to worse. On 4th March, he was arrested in Dallas, Texas for criminal trespassing, according to the inmate entry by the Collin County Jail.

SicK has been held for a 'Class B Misdemeanor' against a bond of $5,000 USD (INR 4,08,928) and as per the law could face either a fine of up to $2,000 USD (INR 1,63,571) or jail for up to 180 days.

As a result of his actions, Sentinels, the esports organization he is currently signed to is looking to suspend him until further notice, according to a report by Dot Esports.

Report: Sentinels to suspend SicK following his arrest and look to replace him with a new sixth player

SicK was arrested after an incident that occurred at a Ferrari car dealership, where he refused to leave after being requested by an employee to vacate the premises.

The 24-year-old has already spent around two to three days in the jail and at the time of writing this article no update on the situation has been reported.

As per reports, Sentinels is now looking to suspend the North American player until the completion of some sort of training that will be provided to him by the organization after his release from the jail.

On top of this, Sentinels has also started looking for a replacement sixth player to complete its roster for the upcoming VCT 2023: Americas League.

It seems that former OpTic Gaming player, Jimmy "Marved" Nguyen, is the current frontrunner for this position and discussions with him are currently underway. However, nothing has been set in stone so far.

He is one of the hot prospects within the North American region alongside the former Cloud9 player, Jaccob "yay" Whiteaker, the main point of attraction being that both of them are free agents.

VCT 2023: Americas League is scheduled to take place from 1st April to 28th May and it will be interesting to see which player Sentinels ends up signing going into this tournament following its disappointing run at the recently concluded VCT 2023: LOCK//IN Sao Paulo.
