Mavs owner Mark Cuban denies 2011 sex assault allegation

Posted March 09, 2018

On Wednesday, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban denied the accusation of sexual assault in a Portland bar back in 2011. While they smiled for the camera, she claimed, he thrust his hand down the back of her jeans and penetrated her vagina with his finger. 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".

The Willamette Week interviewed the woman, who remains anonymous.

"The NBA league office is reviewing the 2011 allegations against Mark Cuban and the subsequent findings from the Portland police investigation", Bass said.

She added: 'I filed the report because what he did was wrong'.

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.

"I really left it in the past", she told Jaquiss. A few weeks ago a Sports Illustrated story came out detailing the "corrosive workplace culture" of the Mavericks organization.

Charges were never filed after the District Attorney determined there was insufficient evidence as no witnesses or physical evidence were found.

"The case detective and the complainant both agree with the conclusion there is no corroborative evidence to support the complaint's allegation". Cuban, who owns the Mavericks, is alleged to have actually slid his finger into her vagina. In it, the woman's friend said that Cuban was, "Very drunk" and that "His eyes were half closed, he was unstable on his feet, and he was slurring his words".

"[Cuban] is a large male with large hands, making penetration without lubrication of the woman in the standing position virtually impossible", the doctors wrote.

Cuban told SI that he fired human resources director Buddy Pittman after learning details of the magazine's report, which included claims that superiors were seen as unresponsive to complaints.

Cuban later told detectives that he had been at the nightclub that evening with Kevin Love, the National Basketball Association star who had grown up in Lake Oswego, Willamette Week reported.
