Mark Cuban denies reported 2011 allegation of sexual assault

TUCSON AZ – MARCH 03 Deandre Ayton

On Wednesday, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban denied the accusation of sexual assault in a Portland bar back in 2011.

According to weekly publication, a police transcript detailed the woman's claim that she asked Cuban for a photo op in Portland's Barrel Room.

"I filed the report because what he did was wrong", the woman, now married and in her mid-30s, told Willamette Week in a brief interview.

Shortly after the newspaper published the story, Cuban told the Associated Press that the alleged incident "did not happen".

The report about the 2011 allegation comes two weeks after Sports Illustrated published an investigation into a Mavericks "corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior".

The Dallas Mavericks' legal woes have now extended to owner Mark Cuban.

"Oh! Hell no!" Cuban said to police in response to the allegation, according to Willamette Week. "I stand behind that report 1,000%".

Cuban has denied that such an incident took place.

"He then moved his hand down until it was on her buttocks", Portland Police Detective Brendan McGuire wrote in his summary of the woman's statement.

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

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.

Portland defense attorney Stephen Houze, who represented Cuban during the police investigation, sent the same message Wednesday morning in an email to The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Police also reviewed seven photographs taken of the woman and one of her friends standing next to Cuban at the time. "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 report included claims of inappropriate sexual conduct by former CEO Terdema Ussery and raised questions about what Cuban knew and when.
