Off-duty deputy won't face prosecution for fatal crash that killed ex-Marine


Michael Cedarland drove into a Starbucks last December while apparently suffering a seizure.

He hit Sergio Mendez, a retired Marine and Iraq war veteran. Mendez was sitting in a chair when Cedarland's SUV crashed through the building and pinned him against a wall.

Mendez died in surgery.

After a yearlong investigation, authorities determined Cedarland was not at fault.
