Stephen Colbert’s crew will not be facing any charges after being arrested last month at the US Capitol complex, according to media reports citing federal prosecutors. All nine people have been dismissed without any legal action.

While the identity of these individuals has not been revealed by the US Capitol police or the CBS’ ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ staff, media reports say that the list included several producers, along with comedian and writer Robert Smigel, the voice behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

A spokesman for the US attorney’s office said it was not probable a conviction could be obtained and sustained given that the nine arrested had been invited and that their escorts had never asked them to leave the building. Capitol Police officers said Monday they respect the decision made by the US attorney’s office, according to reports from Associated Press.

Police said the group was arrested on unlawful entry charges “because members of the group had been told several times before they entered the Congressional buildings that they had to remain with a staff escort inside the buildings and they failed to do so.”

Prosecutors said the group had been invited by congressional staffers and had never been asked to leave by the staff members who had invited them. The US attorney’s office said some people in the group of nine had been told by police that they were supposed to have an escort.

“The Office would be required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these invited guests were guilty of the crime of unlawful entry because their escort chose to leave them unattended,” said Bill Miller, a spokesman for the US attorney’s office. “We do not believe it is probable that the Office would be able to obtain and sustain convictions on these charges.”
