Mikey Post -- the little person from "Boardwalk Empire" and Adam Sandler's "Bedtime Stories" -- was arrested this weekend after cops say the dude was so hammered ... he passed out on his motor scooter.

Boardwalk Empire Little Person Arrested

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Post was discovered on a street in Burbank, CA after a citizen flagged down police to alert them about a small drunken man who was "out of it" on a street corner.

We're told cops found Post and arrested him for being drunk in public. Post was taken to a nearby jail around 1:20 AM and booked. He was listed at 3'2" and 50 lbs.

Post was held for roughly 10 hours while he sobered up -- and was eventually released. We're told no charges will be filed.

Calls to Post's reps have not been returned.
