I mean really; if they are standing there telling the cops; we're sorry a neighbor called you but we're perfectly fine (& gettin' busy) how can they arrest you anyway??
Don't they have some sort of "wrongful arrest" suit or something? If that doesn't apply can you explain why?
I mean I get that they "dropped" the charges; but she was still arrested; still perp walked out of her home (during or right after an intimate moment) taken to jail; booked; and then have had her name and pictures in the media because of this.

In many states, all reports of domestic violence require they separate the two people for a period of time. Any SIGN of actual violence, including scratches, are cause for arrest.
Just because there was only ONE visible sign, it doesn't mean the guy didn't have other signs of abuse that couldn't be immediately recognized. And just because it was a GUY it doesn't mean he couldn't be abused and scared to admit it.
The cops were following protocol. They did the right thing.
