Mark Cuban investigated in 2011 for sexual assault at Portland nightclub


Billionaire and television personality Mark Cuban has been accused of sexual assault, according to a bombshell report by Willamette Weekly.

Prosecutors declined to purse the case due to lack of evidence.

"It didn't happen", Cuban told The Associated Press in an email on Tuesday. The woman claims that, while the two posed for a photograph together, Cuban thrust his hand down the back of her trousers, and penetrated her vagina with his finger.

In a report explaining why they weren't pursuing the case, prosecutors wrote that 'there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim'.

"Oh! Hell no!", Cuban says upon hearing the accusation, per the Week. "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

According to Portland Police Department documents obtained by Willamette Week, a woman ran into Cuban while out on the town with her boyfriend following a Mavericks game against the Portland Trailblazers in April 2011.

"If she told five friends right there and then, then that's what they're gonna tell the judge and I'm gonna be fucked", he was quoted as saying.

Houze ordered a polygraph test conducted by former Miami Police Detective Sgt. Warren Holmes days after Cuban spoke with McGuire, and the results supported Cuban's denial. Cuban actually chose to speak at length with Portland Police Detective Brendan McGuire, who filed the report, rather than consulting an attorney first. But McGuire did say, "There are two pictures that do appear to have your shoulder dipping and your arm sort of, if you follow the direction of it, down below her waist". Cuban and no one observed any inappropriate behavior by Mr.

Sneed has since been fired and Cuban told Sports Illustrated that human resources director Buddy Pittman has also been given his marching orders after further details of the report emerged. The story alleged that Mavericks CEO and president Terdema Ussery is notorious for sexual harassment and put the spotlight on other Mavericks staff members as sexual harassment perpetrators.
