THE moment a laughing alleged murderer told cops "I warned you" after stabbing his neighbour to death has been shown to jurors.
Can Arslan, 52, was pinned to the ground by police in the footage after knifing dad-of-three Matthew Boorman 27 times.
He can be heard laughing in the clip, which was shown to Bristol Crown Court, before saying: "He is dead, isn't he? I warned you, the police. One year. Look, it happened."
Still chuckling, Arslan continues: "I warned them I was going to murder him".
He then claims he was in "special forces" and warns the "motherf****r" officers there is a "bounty on your heads".
Arslan also pleads with the police not to place the handcuffs around the front as he has "arthritis" before he was taken away in the back of a police car.

Jurors were told he repeated the chilling claims while in custody, saying: "I warned you people were going to die tonight. More people are going to die tonight. There are contracts on their head.
"I told you I was going to murder him. I was a sniper in the army and I told him not to mess with me. I killed 50 people in the Kurdish army."
Arslan is accused of stabbing Matthew to death on his front lawn in Walton Cardiff near Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
He then sat on the dad's lifeless body and smoked a "triumphant" cigarette before continuing on his knife rampage, it is said.

The raging neighbour slashed at Matthew's wife Sarah Boorman – leaving her with a deep wound to her thigh from the knife as she desperately tried to pull Arslan off her husband.
The court was told he then attacked another local, Peter Marsden, before brave off-duty cops tried to subdue him with golf clubs and wooden slabs.
Fuelled by "anger and revenge", Arslan only dropped the bloody knife when cops eventually arrived and a "red dot" of a Taser was pointed at him, it was said.
Jurors heard how locals had been trying to evict him for several years due to his anti-social behaviour.
The row started with an argument over a "shared drive" but had continued to escalate with repeated threats to kill his neighbours, the court was told.
He would allegedly shout at them "I'll put you down" and was recorded six months before the killing stating: "I am going to f***ing do a massacre."
