Valorant pro SicK apologises and seeks therapy for “offensive” tweets

According to an earlier report by DotEsports, Hunter “SicK” Mims of Sentinels Valorant was earlier taken into custody. So far, there has been no official word regarding the 24-year-old’s release. Mims is being held on a $5000 USD bond after being charged with a Class B misdemeanor as he was held in Dallas, Texas at the Collin County Jail. 

After his tweet about a confrontation at a Ferrari dealership, Mims was eventually taken into custody by local law enforcement officers. According to the report surfaced by Dot, Mims remained at the dealership yet after being asked to leave the premises. He too added that the cops were summoned upon Mims calling the place to be “disrespectful”.

He was later arrested for the second time in three months, the second time on charges of criminal trespassing.

SicK was “arrested again… for criminal trespassing, the same charge as before,” journalist George Geddes wrote on May 8 of this year, detailing the star’s second arrest on this same charge. Dot Esports was able to verify the charge by consulting the Collin County court records.

A little over two months ago, SicK was also accused of the same offence. The VALORANT pro was arrested on March 4, 2023, for committing a Class B Misdemeanour for remaining in a Ferrari showroom after being asked to leave.

SicK apologized for his insensitive tweets and his prior behavior in an open post on his Twitter account. He expressed regret for any hurt he may have caused and agreed that the controversial comments should be removed. SicK admitted in all modesty that the road ahead of him to self-improvement would be long and difficult. 

“Over the past weeks I’m sure you’ve all seen some of my posts on social media,” he said on June 1, addressing the many tweets he has made of late. “Many of my comments went too far and I apologize for any offensive comments and I’ll be deleting those posts to address this issue.” 

SicK sent a heartfelt apology for his inappropriate tweets, detailing his life and addressing the issues he’s been facing since they were tweeted out. He apologized profusely for any hurt he may have caused and understood the urgency of removing the controversial comments. 

He concluded by adding, “This will be a long journey so I anticipate that I’ll continue to make some missteps, but I appreciate the support as I try to work through all this.”

It is definitely too early to determine whether this means a return to the Sentinels’ active Valorant squad. If SicK stays on Sentinels as a content developer in the future, he won’t be the only former pro on the team who is still under contract with the organization.
