Personal involvement with someone possibly psychotic?

I've recently found out a person I know could truly be psychotic. So my question is what are the general guidelines for psychosis and when does personal involvement with someone suspected of being psychotic become dangerous?
As more background, this person I know is a compulsive liar. But the lies are getting more hurtful and what I mean by this, is that the person actually will start yelling at me and screaming they can't talk because they're at work where cell phones are prohibited. I've found out later this person was not at work but sitting at a coffee shop at the time of the call. I know compulsive lying is unfortunately common, but when mixed with a short tempers and outbursts, is it verging onto dangerous psychosis where personal safety is called into question?
