A musical motorist nearly had a “Blue Christmas” — in March.
A passenger with no holiday spirit was arrested last week after allegedly choking a driver who wouldn’t stop singing Christmas carols last week.
Western Pennsylvania cops arrested Clayton Lucas last Monday and charged him with trying to strangle the driver of a minivan in which he was a passenger, according to a CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh.
The driver reportedly told cops that his 25-year-old passenger grabbed his throat while he was driving south on Route 28 and choked him to where he was barely conscious because he wouldn’t stop singing Christmas songs.
A state trooper who was waved down over a “possible medical emergency” at 9 a.m. Monday near a highway off-ramp. The officer approached both men on the shoulder of the road, after they’d exited the vehicle.
Lucas reportedly wouldn’t listen to the officer, who was forced to wrestle him to the ground. The victim allegedly showed signs of possible choking.
Lucas was brought to the Allegheny County Jail.
