Story highlights

John Felton recorded a conversation with an Ohio police officer who stopped his car

"You made direct eye contact with me and held onto it," officer told the driver, according to the video

The officer also said Felton did not properly signal before a turn

(CNN) —  

When a police officer in Dayton, Ohio, handed John Felton a warning for a traffic signal violation, Felton asked whether he was stopped for something besides having out-of-state plates, according to a video of the conversation posted on Facebook.

“Because you made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you,” the officer replied in the video.

Felton posted the video on Facebook. It’s another example of how the national conversation about police-community interaction, especially with minorities, is being scrutinized. Technology makes the interactions easy to record and to share via social media.

Dayton police didn’t reply to CNN’s request for comment but tweeted, “We are aware of the video and are reviewing it.”

Felton has agreed to have a conversation with the officer, facilitated by the Dayton Mediation Center, the statement said. The mediation center declined comment Monday.

“The Dayton Police Department is a true partner in the community and enjoys a positive community-police relationship,” the statement said.

When contacted Sunday, Felton declined to comment to CNN and referred questions to his lawyer, Byron Potts. Potts also declined to comment until Monday. The Dayton Mediation Center could not be reached for comment.

The officer’s race and identity are not known. He said his name at the start of the conversation, but it doesn’t come through clearly on the recording.

CNN affiliate WKEF in Dayton reported that Felton grew up in Ohio but now lives in Michigan. His car has a Michigan license plate.

He told WKEF the officer followed his car about two miles and originally said he had committed a minor traffic offense: not signaling more than 100 feet before making a turn.

“I got a nice car,” Felton said to WKEF. “I don’t know if he seen I was a black male. I feel like I was targeted, the Michigan car and it was about 11 o’clock at night.”

Felton let the officer know he was recording the conversation and complained about being followed.

When the officer stepped away from his car, Felton said on the recording, “He followed me for about two miles and when I got to my mom’s house he wants to pull on his lights. … He ain’t about to Sandra Bland me.”

Felton was referencing Sandra Bland, who was found dead on July 13 in a cell at the Waller County Jail in Texas. She was incarcerated after allegedly assaulting an officer during a July 10 traffic stop. Her death was ruled a suicide.

In the video Felton recorded, the officer gives Felton a warning. Felton then asks why he was stopped.

“I’m not doing nothing, because I have a Michigan plate, other than that why are you trailing me?” Felton said on the recording.

“You made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you,” the officer said.

“What! I didn’t even see you,” Felton said.

“I am not going to argue about it anymore with you, sir,” the officer said. “I’ll just scan your license and give you a citation for the violation, and you could take it to court.”

“OK, sir,” Felton says. He and the officer then drove away.
