Tool Academy Tool Busted -- Bothered Non-Tools

10/24/2009 11:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the tools from "Tool Academy" was allegedly being such a drunken, massive tool at a bar in Arizona this morning that his toolish behavior landed him in the slammer.


Cops tell TMZ Tyler Synon -- one of the "stars" on season two of the VH1 reality show -- was arrested at Martini Bay inside the Queens Bay Resort in Lake Havasu at 1:47 AM.

According to the police report, the "intoxicated" unemployed 22-year-old "had been having an issue with another group of guests" and was asked to leave. Synon allegedly "took a swing" at the employee who asked him to get out, then "hit a wall and a sign" as he was exiting the bar, causing damage to both.

Tyler was arrested for misdemeanor charges of criminal damage and disorderly conduct. Instead of bail, Tyler has to pay $900 in fines ... $500 up front to get out of jail and the rest within three days.

And here's the best part: Before we got the mug shots, we asked the arresting officer how he knew Tyler was from "Tool Academy" ... and he said it was because he had a huge Tool Academy tattoo on his leg. Yeah.

UPDATE: Tyler gave us the following statement: "I just got out of jail, I don't like the feeling, the tool is out of his cage and back on the prowl. I'm glad to be out it was a stupid reason, hitting the sign! There were 5 guards trying to hold me down but I'm a beast, they tried to tackle me, I tried to get them off of me."

This is so sad to hear. It looked like he was doing so well on Tool Academy and he was my favorite and I wanted him and Shea to win so bad. I have lost all respect for him. I guess once a tool always a tool. Some people never change. I thought this guy really did change I guess he fooled us all.

This guy could actually be the very first tool-douche-bag combo!! He looks like he's been crying too. You're such a tool that you cry when you get locked up. Come on bro-sif!! Don't you know that you're gonna go to jail when the fists start flying? Oh! Of course you don't. That's why you are the 1st ever tool-douche-bag!! You should get TDB tatooed on your forehead, that way people know to avoid your sorry ... can I say "ass" on this website??

Anyway, congrats on the TDB award!! May it take you down the block and kick your ass!!
