'Ice Road Truckers' Star

About That Whole

Hooker Kidnapping Thing

4/23/2014 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

042314_zickhur_launch"Ice Road Truckers" star Tim Zickuhr claims HE is the victim and not the hooker he's accused of tying up, beating, and forcing to jump out a window ... and he is itching for his day in court.

As TMZ first reported, Zickuhr was charged with three felonies -- first degree kidnapping, extortion, and coercion -- after an incident involving a Las Vegas hooker last December.

Zickuhr told our TMZ photog he did not hire the woman as a prostitute, instead insisting she's a friend. Zickuhr says he was trying to be a nice guy by loaning the woman money ... giving her his ATM card and PIN number.  Instead of taking out a little ... Zickuhr claims she wiped him out.

Zickuhr says he never tied her up, never beat her and never made her jump out of a window ... but admits this whole ordeal has probably ruined his career in Hollywood. 

BTW ... yes, we know that's Syrus from "Real World: Boston" standing next to him in the video. And yes, that's weird as hell.

Seriously, are there any teeth in his mouth? And isn't the daily withdrawal limit on ATM's $500? How did she wipe him out?

It's the classic story. Tell a lie so you look like a moron (giving a "friend" your bank card and PIN) instead of a john who beats up hookers.

My hookers would never do me like that, they're respectable Craigs List girls.

Wow! I don't know who he is, but why didn't the reporter ask his friend Cyrus what he's been up to since Realworld/Roadrules days!

Tim Zickuhr's mug is the face of a 32 hour binge on crack and McCormick vodka... Of course there was a hooker in the mix...Lucky she survived. Truckers, Cocaine and Hookers almost ALWAYS ends badly for the hooker.

Some key points to his rant: " long story short" = red flag! lmao

" I brought her back to my place" Classic! Kicking & screaming!

"She's a crack head" Yet, I gave her my ATM card and pin # - Translation: The hooker has the crack connect and was going on a re up.
