A heavily-tattooed young mother has been jailed after filming the violent moment she kidnapped and assaulted a man while high on meth.
Mikayla Rae Cook, 23, and Tyler Lindsay, 19, stormed man’s his house in south Kalgoorlie, Western Australia in April.
They were allegedly helped by four accomplices who are yet to face court, the West Australian reported.
In the disturbing phone footage, Cook, who was out on bail for assaulting a police officer at the time, can be heard threatening the victim.

‘I’m sorry bro, you f***ed with my family. You’re done,’ Cook says after the man is dragged by his ankles into a backyard.
She continues to film as the shirtless man, 26, is then forced into the boot of a car.
Cook is later heard threatening to kill the victim as the pair sit in the back of a car.
‘Anyone comes back to this house or near my family, I will kill you next time, dog,’ she says.
Cook appeared in the Kalgoorlie District Court on Monday where she was sentenced to 18 months behind bars after pleading guilty to detaining another with intent and assault occasioning bodily harm.
Earlier, the court had heard Cook, screamed at the man as he held a hatchet to defend himself during the kidnapping in April.
The man dropped the hatchet before one of the accomplices charged at him and tackled him to the floor, Kalgoorlie District Court heard.

Then Lindsay hit the victim with a metal pole before punching him several times in the back.
Lindsay dragged the battered and bruised victim outside by the ankles and bundled him into the back of a car.
The victim, who had fractured ribs from the fight, had no idea where he was being taken, the prosecution told the court.
The car stopped at a house and the victim was released from the boot and managed to run away.
At the time of the kidnapping Cook was on bail for assaulting a police officer in August 2018.
She was jailed for six months for that attack in June.
Cook and Lindsay both pleaded guilty to detaining another with intent and assault occasioning bodily harm and were on Monday each jailed for 18 months.
Justice Stone described the crime as a ‘very serious example of a kidnapping’.
