We're not defending what this guy did, but we do get it..  Hahaha!!

Apparently.....a guy with a history of drug abuse....25-year-old Clayton Lucas... has been living in a halfway house near Pittsburgh. 

He was on his way to a treatment class last Monday when the guy driving him there wouldn't stop singing along to CHRISTMAS carols.  Yes, in March.

It's not clear if they know each other or what, but Clayton asked him to stop, and the guy wouldn't.  SO...while they were driving down the road, Clayton reached from the backseat and tried to STRANGLE him.

The guy almost passed out, but managed to pull over onto the side of the road.  Then a cop saw them arguing and arrested Clayton.  Now, he's facing several charges, including aggravated assault.

Should it be illegal to sing Christmas Carols in March?  We wanna know..
