This prosecutor was admitted to the bar — and stayed a little too long.

An allegedly boozed-up Brooklyn assistant district attorney was arrested early yesterday after he pummeled an EMT worker who picked him up on the Brooklyn Bridge, police sources said.

The medics spotted Michael Jaccarino, 30, at the foot of the bridge before 1 a.m. after responding to a 911 call about a highly intoxicated man, the sources say.

The blitzed barrister was leaving the pedestrian pathway on the Manhattan side when emergency workers confronted him, and he voluntarily entered the ambulance.

But when they tried to take him to Beth Israel Hospital, he went berserk.

EMT Teresa Soler, 46, restrained him to a seat, but Jaccarino allegedly ripped off his arm strap and smacked her with his forearms, knocking her to the ground, then choked her.
