That pole has been down for two weeks or more. It looks like it's a very old pole. There is telephone cable attached to the pole, and cable tv cable - - since the phone company has been here in town a LONG time, and cable only recently got here, it MUST be a Verizon pole. There's nothing arcing - - there's no electricity on the pole. I emailled my nephew that works for Verizon and asked him to report it. Maybe they'll get it fixed eventually - no guarantees.
