25-year-old Clayton Lucas was a passenger in the car going from a halfway house to a treatment class, according to KDKA. The driver of the car was singing Christmas music, which made Lucas angry.

According to the criminal complaint, the victim almost lost consciousness but was able to flag down a trooper, who noticed the victim’s neck was red and his eyes were also bloodshot.

Lucas was later taken into custody and faces multiple charges.
