Police say Grapevine man hung doll with noose outside black neighbor's apartment

Dante Petty, 28, says that when he moved to Grapevine in June 2017 with his young daughter, he immediately began to have problems with his white neighbor in the apartment below him.

Petty, who is black, said in a Facebook post at the time that it began with Glenn Halfin, 64, throwing eggs and dog feces on his car.

Petty could not be reached for comment. But he said on Facebook that a video camera he put outside his apartment captured Halfin, a former firefighter and arson investigator, tying a rope around the neck of a doll and hanging it from a railing in December.

Halfin was arrested in January by Grapevine police and charged with stalking, Tarrant County court records show.

On Friday, federal prosecutors in Dallas charged Halfin with a misdemeanor civil rights offense: interference with the right to fair housing, which makes it a crime to threaten a person's housing rights due to factors such as their race or color.
