Social media users have been left horrified by recorded phone conversations between Chay Bowskill and his mother.
Phone conversations which took place after the incident have since come to light between Bowskill and his mother.
In Channel 4 documentary The Kidnap of Angel Lynn, a phone call reveals Bowskill ringing up his mother to question what she said in her statement to police.
He says: "You best ring them up now yeah, coz you was drunk when you gave the statement as well, weren't ya?"
Despite his mother's denial of being drunk when she gave the statement, Bowskill carries on, demanding his mother ring them up 'now,' 'as soon as [she] get[s] off this phone'.
"You ring them up and you say, and you tell 'em, you was drunk. Make sure you tell 'em you was drunk."
In a later conversation, Bowskill questions why his mum told police he was 'controlling' in his relationship with Lynn.
His mother responds: "I said you were controlling, because you were."
"You shouldn't have said anything from the start, should ya? You f*****g idiot," Bowskill replies.
While his mum tries to stop Bowskill's verbal attack on her, he carries on, calling her a 'f*****g horrible b*****d'.
Viewers of the documentary have flooded to social media in outrage and horror over the phone call conversations.
One Twitter user said: "Disgusting that somebody can speak to their mum that way."
"Chay Bowskill needs to be taught some manners in prison. Such a piece of s**t," another wrote.
A third added: "Deserved double 12 years. [What an] evil entity."
While Bowskill was acquitted after being tried for causing grievous bodily harm with intent for pushing Lynn from the van, he has since been convicted of kidnapping, engaging in coercive and controlling behaviour and perverting the court of justice - sentenced to 12 years in prison.
The Kidnap of Angel Lynn first aired on Channel 4 last night (Tuesday, 9 May) at 9pm. You can catch up on All4.
