Man shot by police after car chase
arraigned in hospital bed

(MEDFORD, Mass.) -- A 31-year-old Medford man shot by police after a high-speed chase into Stoneham last month was arraigned in his bed at Massachusetts General Hospital yesterday.

Scott Ranney, who is being treated for vascular damage to his stomach and had a kidney removed because of the shooting, pleaded innocent to charges that included driving after license suspension, possession of heroin with intent to distribute, larceny of a motor vehicle, assault and battery on a police officer, failure to stop and resisting arrest.

He is due to appear in Somerville District Court Dec. 19 for a status hearing.

Medford police said they were monitoring Ranney because they suspected he was about to complete a drug deal and that he led them on a high-speed chase into Stoneham after refusing to stop for officers.

Police claim Ranney was accidentally shot during a scuffle with officers but his attorney, Jeffrey Denner, said his unarmed client was shot in the back as he tried to flee.
