Federal prosecutors have declined to prosecute members of a production team associated with Stephen Colbert's late-night comedy show who were arrested last month on Capitol Hill.

A production team involved with The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which airs on CBS, had been charged with unlawful entry and had a court date set for this week after being arrested by Capitol Police while filming segments for cigar-smoking puppet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog handled by comedian Robert Smigel.

CBS acknowledged last month that a production team involved in filming segments for cigar-smoking puppet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, handled by comedian Robert Smigel, was detained by Capitol Police, and Colbert himself addressed the arrests on his show Monday.
