Freeth, 42, from Waterfurrows Way, Moulton, admitted driving while disqualified, having no insurance and failing to stop.
He was arrested outside his home address after he had initially failed to stop in Nobottle Road during the early hours of last Sunday (October 18)
A spokesman for Northampton's Police Response Team said: "The vehicle failed to stop for colleagues in Daventry but our officers identified its possible route.
"The vehicle was located again and pursued with assistance from the Armed Response Vehicles team to bring it to safe conclusion.
"Unfortunately the officers involved were slightly disappointed the driver was given a suspended sentence despite 50 previous offences of driving while disqualified and previous imprisonment for it."
