Mark Cuban Denies Accusation of Sexual Assault from 2011 Case

Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban was investigated in 2011 on allegations of sexual assault in Portland, according to a report from Willamette Week.

Prosecutors ultimately declined to pursue the case, citing a lack of supporting evidence.

In an email to The Associated Press late Tuesday night, Cuban's office wrote that "it didn't happen".

The allegation, detailed in police reports quoted in Oregon's Willamette Week newspaper yesterday, involved Cuban reaching down the backside of a woman's trousers and penetrating her vagina during a photo snapshot at a crowded Portland nightclub.

Explaining their decision in a report, prosecutors wrote that "there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim", and that the woman chose not to proceed with her claim.

"This incident never happened and her accusations are false".

Though originally presented to police in 2011, the accuser came forward this week, saying she did so because "What he did was wrong". Cuban and no one observed any inappropriate behavior by Mr.

The police report details photos of Cuban and the accuser, and the detective described the photo quality as "not good enough to" see Cuban's hands.

The woman also provided Portland Police with seven photos, two of which McGuire reportedly deemed "significant". "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

McGuire also noted the alleged victim's expression: "Her teeth are clenched, eyes wider than the other pictures and brow raised showing a look of surprise and strain". "How would I get, I mean, she wouldn't say something right there and then and smack the shit out of me?" Sneed has reportedly been fired since the publication of Sports Illustrated's report.

Last month, Sports Illustrated published a report detailing several instances of alleged sexual harassment and domestic violence by Dallas Mavericks employees, including former president and CEO Terdema Ussery.
