    A Worcester, Massachusetts man charged with intentionally running down a police officer during a pursuit has been held without bail pending a hearing to determine whether he is a danger to society. 

    Matthew Ostrander was held at his arraignment Monday on 17 charges including assault to murder. The dangerousness hearing is scheduled for Thursday. 

    Police say the 47-year-old Ostrander was being pursued Saturday afternoon because he was a suspect in a Millbury housebreak. 

    Police say Ostrander struck Auburn Officer Luis Santos with his vehicle as Santos was laying down tire-deflation devices.

    Police say the married father of four should be out of the hospital by the end of the week. 

    Ostrander's court-appointed lawyer had no comment outside of court.
