State police say Clayton Lucas, 25, assaulted the man because the victim was singing Christmas songs while transporting Lucas from a halfway house to a treatment class. Investigators said Lucas became enraged that the victim was playing the music and began to strike and choke the victim, causing him to almost lose consciousness. I get it’s a few months past their expiration date, but choking someone in the Christmas spirit is kind of extreme. Funny thing is he looks like a young Santa Claus. I wonder how he feels about people that still have their lights up?
