    Timothy Zickuhr, who has appeared on the History Channel's Ice Road Truckers, has been arrested after allegedly kidnapping a prostitute in Las Vegas.

    In addition to first-degree kidnapping, he was also charged with extortion and coercion.

    According to the police report, the woman in question—who goes by the name Snow White—claims Zickuhr gave her his ATM card to pay for her services on Dec. 18.

    The reality star, however, believed that she withdrew too much money and arranged a meeting the following day in order to go over the dispute.

    It was then that Snow White claims that he attacked her, punched her in the face and threatened to kill her if she didn't get him the money he said she stole.

    The report adds that Zickuhr locked her in his closet and demanded a phone number for someone who would front the missing amount of money, totaling $1,000 dollars.

    Snow White then gave him the phone number of a police officer she knew, without him knowing, and he phoned up the officer demanding that he give him the money or else he would kill her.

    The police then met up with Snow White and Zickuhr and arrested him after a brief chase by foot.

    Zickuhr is expected to appear in court next month.

    The History Channel had no comment, but a spokesperson confirmed that Zickuhr appeared on season two of Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads in 2011 and has not been on the network since.
