Ricky Schroder -- I'm Not a Tool

4/28/2009 1:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ricky Schroder didn't even have time to gloat over his courtroom victory before he got smacked on the butt by the long arm of the law.

Schroder won a Malibu small claims court case against Alicia Roberts, who accused him of conspiring with her ex to steal thousands of dollars in tools. Don't ask -- a totally bogus case.

So after he leaves the courtroom, looking like Richard Nixon with thumbs high in the air, Ricky Boy drives off -- only to be stopped a block away by the fuzz for talking on his cellphone -- a big no no in Caleeefornia these days.

The good news -- Tricky Ricky can afford a ticky.
