Reality star Tim Zickuhr of Ice Road Truckers has been arrested. Read on for the facts on the crazy story.
1. Zickuhr Is Charged With Kidnapping a Prostitute
Zickuhr is actually charged with three felonies: first degree kidnapping, extortion, and coercion. After reportedly hiring a prostitute in Las Vegas, Zickuhr apparently beat her, threatened her, and held her against her will. TMZ writes:
According to the police report, the prostitute told cops Tim hired her to perform services on December 18th. She says he gave her his ATM card to withdraw her payment, but he later accused her of taking too much.
Zickuhr’s court date is set for May 2014.
2. The Prostitute Was Allegedly Beaten
This is what the prostitute told police, according to TMZ:
She claims Tim arranged a meeting at his apartment the next day to settle their money dispute — and he attacked, punching her in the face, and threatening to kill her if she didn’t get him the money she’d stolen. She claims Tim tied her up with backpack straps, continued to beat her, and then poured cold water on her from a mop bucket. She claims Tim then locked her in his closet and demanded a phone number for someone who could get him the money.
3. Snow White Is the Name of the Prostitute

4. Zickuhr Reportedly Tried to Hold the Prostitute for Ransom
Here’s when things get really crazy. Snow White made a very clever move and gave Zickuhr the phone number of a cop that she knew. The report states that Zickuhr actually called the phone number and said he’d kill Snow White if he didn’t receive $1,000.
5. Tim Zickuhr Confessed to Everything
Zickuhr and the police officer arranged for a meeting at Zickuhr’s apartment and Zickuhr actually made Snow White leave by climbing out of his second story window. TMZ has the run-down on Zickuhr’s capture and confession:
The cop met Tim and immediately arrested him. The officer claims Tim sang like a canary, admitting everything … placing the phone calls, dousing Snow White in water, locking her in a closet, and pushing her out a window. Just … crazy.
