Cant call halt() from inside custom hook

I cant call halt() from inside my custom hook,
I have a backend Api which has a group "rest" which is only for logged in users and an group "public" which is for all users.
The Problem is that in the "rest/"-group I have to check if the user is logged in and setup some globals.
If somethind fails a function is triggered that calls halt() on the global App.

But I always get a Slim/Exception/Stop.

$app->hook("", function() use ($app, $accountManager, $pdo){
    //Calls $app->halt() on global $app
    sendJsonHttpResponse(503, [
        "message" => "Test"

$app->group("/rest", function() use ($app){
    /*** ROUTES ***/

The code throws the following Error:

<br />
<b>Fatal error</b>:  Uncaught exception 'Slim\Exception\Stop' in webserver\api\vendor\slim\slim\Slim\Slim.php:1022
Stack trace:

#7 {main}

Inside a slim.before hook I can call halt().
