FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) - A new video may show Officer Darren Wilson telling a man to stop recording his arrest in October of last year. It was taken by Ferguson resident, Michael Arman.  He says that he started filming the officer while he was investigating derelict vehicles at his home.

This is a transcript of the video:

"If you want to take a picture one more time, I'm gonna lock your [BLEEP] up." said Officer Wilson.

"Sir, I'm not taking a picture, I'm recording this incident, sir. Do I not have the right to record?" said Arman

"No, you don't."said Officer Wilson.

The police report says Arman was arrested on other charges. Ferguson police would not confirm that it's Wilson on the video, citing the poor quality of it.  Officer Wilson is the same police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in August.  The shooting sparked protests that have gone on for more than 100 days.

The ACLU says no matter which officer it is, the exchange was improper.
