Would the police arrest someone who is foaming at the mouth?

    The term 'arrest' does not, in itself, imply a criminal act. The meaning of the word is 'to stop'.

    Police who encounter someone having a medical emergency are permitted to arrest - stop - that person and detain them for the purposes of seeking medical treatment.

    Probably not unless there is a complaint.

    You read too many books.

    It depends...is the person identifying as a man or an animal.

    No. I'm not aware of any jurisdiction where foaming at the mouth is against the law.

    They would dispatch an ambulance, though. They would also search the person to see if they could find something that would explain the person's condition. If it were illegal drugs, they would get arrested for possession of a controlled substance.

    There is no law against foaming at the mouth, so no.
