‘Ice Road Truckers’ Star Charged With Kidnapping Prostitute

Tim Zickuhr, who appeared on the History Channel’s “Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads” in 2011, was charged with first-degree kidnapping, extortion and coercion in Las Vegas back in December.

Zickuhr allegedly beat up a prostitute whom he thought had overcharged for her services, tied her up, locked her in a closet and ultimately forced her to jump out of his apartment’s second-story window, according to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. arrest report filed on Dec. 19.

The report goes on to state that Zickuhr arranged a meeting with the woman in order to settle a money dispute the day after hiring her. He had allegedly given his debit card to the woman and accused her of withdrawing more than the agreed-upon fee.

Once inside the apartment, he reportedly punched her in the face, threatening to kill her if she didn’t return his money. According to the report, Zickuhr confessed to tying the woman up with backpack straps, pouring water on her from a mop bucket, locking her in a closet and then demanding a phone number for someone who could pay him back.

She ended up giving him the number of a police officer she knew. Zickuhr called the line three times and asked the man who answered — the officer who would later arrest him — for $1,000. If he didn’t pay up, Zickuhr said he would kill the woman and claimed to have a gun in her mouth.

He set up a meeting at a casino to make the exchange, then fled on foot once the officers identified themselves. He confessed to his crimes, including his plan to sell the woman’s services on Craigslist, once he was apprehended.

The police report states that the kidnapped woman was wet, was bruised on her face and had lacerations on her wrist.

Zickuhr’s court date is set for next month.
