Mark Cuban investigated in 2011 for sexual assault at Portland nightclub

Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman almost seven years ago, according to a police report that was made public this week.

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

The incident occurred in April 2011, with the victim alleging that Cuban stuck his hand down her jeans and finger her while posing for a photo in Portland.

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. She told the newspaper she never sought media attention or money from Cuban and has moved on from the incident.

"I filed the report because what he did was wrong", she told the Willamette Week. The complainant has also consistently and repeatedly stated to police investigators she does not want to pursue this matter further.

"I really left it in the past", she told Jaquiss.

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.

According to the report, which the paper obtained through a public records request, the woman immediately told a friend and her boyfriend about what happened but didn't go to police until more than a week later. HuffPost has reached out to Cuban for additional comment. "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent". "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks". 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.

On Feb. 20, Sports Illustrated published the findings of a lengthy investigation that uncovered a pattern of misogyny and predatory sexual misconduct within the Dallas Mavericks organization.
