Troopers in Crawford Co. Use Facial Recognition to Identify Man Resisting Arrest


State police used facial recognition technology to identify a man resisting arrest in Crawford County.

Joshua Sutcliffe of Mesick is charged with assault and resisting police.

In mid-June, state police say he punched someone in the face at a bar in Grayling over a game of pool.

When police were investigating, they say Sutcliffe began shouting vulgarities at them and refused to identify himself.

After his arrest, a trooper used facial recognition to identify him.
