Ray J still managed to get himself arrested, however.

Baldwin may have an anger problem, but was he right about this bike thing?

"Ice Road Truckers" star Timothy Zickuhr has been arrested on charges of kidnapping and extorting a Las Vegas prostitute named "Snow White."

Does the slippery slope of stardom lead to "Ice Road Truckers" ransoming "Snow White?"
