Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.
I understand your situation, but, specifically, what is your question?
OK. Thanks for the information.
To answer your first question, they can come out to your house, even if you didn't call them. Often times, EMS will call the police to assist them on calls.
Whether they can attack you largely depends on the circumstances. If, for example, you were interfering with the EMS crew or not obeying the officers, they can restrain you as needed. How much force they can use depends on the circumstance.
To answer your questions about your son, a person can be arrested for public intox, even in their front yard. Once you step out of the house itself, you are technically in public. As far as the resisting arrest, that can be charged regardless of where a person is (in their house, in their yard, in the street, etc.) if the police are trying to restrain them and they resist. Under the law, resisting can be something as simple as pulling away from the officer's grasp.
