No charges against Eric Foster

While in the middle of doing all this Super Bowl stuff, I had no idea Eric Foster was caught up in some legal stuff:

Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi said criminal charges would not be filed against Eric Foster, a defensive tackle for the Indianapolis Colts.

An employee at the University Place Hotel alleged that Foster assaulted her the night before the AFC playoff game, where the Colts were staying.

This is odd because 1) Why are the Colts staying in a hotel when the playoff games were at home? Was this something that was filed last season, after the loss in San Diego to the Chargers? 2) Why is this getting announced now, before the Super Bowl? The positive for the Colts is this does not seem to be a distraction since no charges are getting filed.
