In a video posted online, a man’s family is defending a man who smashed a man’s car window during clashes in Grand Prairie.
Dennis Tissington, 67, was charged with mischief after a confrontation on Saturday, part of which was recorded by Damian Darling, CTV News reported Tuesday.
Video recorded by Dallyn – showing Tissington breaking through two windows in Dallyn’s car while Dallyn is sitting – was posted online and started going viral.
Dallyn told CTV News he had been dealing with a landscaping dispute before he started recording the video, and was back in his car when Tissington, a relative of the man Dallyn was dealing with, approached with a baton.
Darling said he suffered a lot of injuries in the incident.
Tissington and his relatives did not initially comment, but posted a statement on Facebook late Tuesday night titled “The Other Side” outlining the events on the other side that led to the video.
In the post, a man who identified himself as Tissington’s stepson Tyler Stojan said Dallyn had threatened him in the past over an ongoing dispute dating back to 2014.
Tissington intervened after Darlene stopped at the home, the statement said.
Stojan said he had hired a lawyer and said he planned to file a defamation lawsuit against Dallyn.
