Mark Cuban investigated for alleged sexual assault in 2011, charges never filed

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was reportedly investigated by OR cops in 2011 after a woman claimed he sexually assaulted her in a bar.

The woman, who Willamette Week did not identify because she's an alleged victim of sexual assault, said Cuban put his hand down the back of her trousers and inserted his finger into her vagina while the two posed for a photo. Cuban fully denies the accusation, which surfaced in the Willamette Week after the publication obtained a 50-page police report about an alleged incident for which prosecutors never filed charges. Meanwhile, Cuban flatly denied the allegation, telling the Associated Press on Tuesday: "It didn't happen".

Mark Cuban was investigated for alleged sexual assault in 2011.

She reportedly told police two weeks later, including in her complaint seven photographs taken of her and Cuban.

The woman discussed the matter with family and friends before reporting it to police more than a week after the alleged incident. "I stand behind that report 1,000%".

A detective in the case described two of the photos as "significant" in his report, according to Willamette Week.

In his 2011 memo, Rees wrote that investigators interviewed friends of the woman with her at the nightclub as well as employees and other patrons.

One appeared to show Cuban reaching toward the woman's buttocks. Cuban and no one observed any inappropriate behavior by Mr.

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. A summary of the alleged victim's statement within the report stated that Cuban's hand moved from her lower back to her rear end, after which he allegedly "pushed his hand down the back of her jeans and inside her underwear where he cupped his hand over her groin area and inserted the tip of his finger into her vagina".

Later, Cuban lamented the he-said/she-said nature of the allegations.
