Crusher was like that because he realised that something was wrong...and I think that he knew what was wrong: He wanted to leave Starfleet, but didn't know how to tell his mom. He most certainly did not want to let her down or anyone else on the Enterprise
that had helped him over the years. So, since he couldn't figure out how to remove the collar around his neck, he became angry and frustrated and he took it out on those around him. I think that he knew what was wrong, but he didn't know what to do about it. It's sort of similar to Jake in DS9 when he tries to figure out how to tell his dad that he doesn't want to join Starfleet. Perhaps Wesley should have spoken to Miles O'Brien.
