Mark Cuban Investigated for Alleged Sexual Assault in 2011

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

"It didn't happen." Cuban told The AP on Tuesday via email. She alleges that while they posed together, he reached down the back of her trousers and penetrated her vagina with a finger. 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. More specifically, the alleged victim said Cuban "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".

"I filed the report because what he did was wrong", she was quoted as saying by Willamette Week.

But she told Willamette Week she stands behind her claim "1,000 per cent". "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks".

While the incident apparently was not observed by others, the police report, according to the newspaper, included the snapshots of Cuban and the woman that were taken at the time of the alleged molestation, including two photos described by a detective as showing what appears to be Cuban "reaching down toward her buttocks".

The allegations come only two weeks after the Mavs became embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal.

In the wake of the SI report, Cuban fired reporter Earl K. Sneed, telling ESPN that keeping Sneed on board after multiple domestic violence incidents was "a frightful mistake in hindsight". Cuban was not accused of sexual misconduct by any of the dozens of current and former team employees SI spoke with and told SI that he was shocked and abhorred by the investigation.
