Reality TV Trucker Kidnapps Prostitute
Tim Zickuhr who stared in a reality trucking show has been convicted of kidnapping a Las Vegas prostitute and threatened to kill her. The Ice Road trucker former star wasn’t able to convince a judge the woman he allegedly tied up and threw in a closet was not a prostitute but was instead a friend of his.
Back in April Zickuhr had tied up a prostitute from Vegas, who goes by the name Snow White, with backpack straps and then locked her in a closet. He then made contact with Snow Whites friend who was a LVPD police officer and tried to collect a $1,000 ransom for her. A Nevada judge found Zickuhr guilty Tuesday of kidnapping and extortion.
Zickuhr’s mugshot was taken in December immediately after his arrest however; it hadn’t been released until recently. It would appear that in the mugshot 40-year-old has either bruises or dirt over both sides of his face.
TMZ reported that Zickuhr had attacked the prostitute after accusing her of taking too much money off of his debit card after giving it to her to pay for her services. After accusing her of taking too much from his account, she agreed to come back and meet him the following day to take care of the problem, however as soon as she walked into his apartment, he punched her and said that he would kill her if she didn’t get him the money.
Zickuhr had joined the History Channel reality show in its second season in 2011, driving cargo across some of the scariest roads in Bolivia. The show was canceled after the second season and Zickuhr returned to the United States.
The Las Vegas judge sentenced Zickuhr to the maximum of 15 years in prison.
