Isaacs-Neville was re-arrested in October and charged and convicted of escaping from lawful custody.
He was also charged with a number of driving offences, including failing to stop, driving while disqualified, driving without insurance and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
Isaacs-Neville was sentenced to a total of three years’ imprisonment, which includes four months for breaching a previous suspended sentence.
He was also disqualified from driving for three years and must take an extended test before being able to drive again.
A restraining order was granted for three years for the victim of the assaults, and Isaacs-Neville was ordered to pay a £181 victim surcharge.
Investigating officer, detective constable Ollie Bali said: “Che Isaacs-Neville showed a complete disregard for the law on multiple occasions and actively evaded arrest so he wouldn’t have to accept punishment for his actions.
“We hope this sends out a clear message that we will continue to pursue offenders in order to keep our streets safe and protect our communities.”
