A police officer has been caught on camera threatening to use lethal force against an argumentative driver in a Gold Coast carpark.

The explosive video shows the officer with his hands on his taser in the altercation.

"If you get aggressive with me, I will counter that and I will beat you," the officer says.

Asked what he would counter with, the officer replies, "Anything from fatal use of force".

The video has only recently been posted online, but police say the incident took place in February last year.

"You're going to use fatal force while I'm sitting in my car?" the driver says.

"If I have to," the officer replies.

The video posted online does not show what took place before or after the argument.

The driver, who 9News understands is known to police, was issued fines for number plate offences.
