‘Ice Road Truckers’ Driver Tim Zickuhr Charged With Kidnapping Vegas Hooker

By: Val Powell - April 23, 2014

Tim Zickuhr, one of the drivers on History Channel’s show Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads, is facing felony charges for purportedly kidnapping a prostitute named Lisa Cadeau, also called “Snow White.”

According to police reports, Zickuhr went to an ATM machine and asked Cadeau to use his credit card to withdraw cash so that he could pay her for sexual services. Cadeau withdrew too much cash, which angered Zickuhr. He then allegedly tied up the prostitute and locked her in a closet back in his apartment. Zickuhr told Cadeau to give him a phone number that he could call so that he could get back the money she owed him.

In addition to locking her up, reports also indicated that Zickuhr punched Cadeau in the face while threatening to kill her if she didn’t give back the money.

What the reality star didn’t know was that Cadeau was a “citizen source,” and that the phone number she gave him was for a Las Vegas police officer’s phone.

According to the officer who received the call, Zickuhr told him to show up at a phone booth and bring $1000 or else he would kill Cadeau. He also mentioned that he heard Cadeau screaming through the phone before that call was disconnected.

The officer eventually followed the lead and was able to arrest Zickuhr behind a casino in Las Vegas.

Roy Nelson, Zickuhr’s attorney, said that his client maintains his innocence to “any criminal wrongdoing.” He also explained that Cadeau, the alleged victim, has credibility issues. Authorities will be performing an investigation regarding the events that transpired on the night of the incident.

The History Channel has not released a statement regarding the issue. It was noted, however, that Zickuhr has not been part of the show since the second season.

Zickuhr is due to appear in court in May.
