Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was reportedly accused of sexual assault back in 2011. No charges were filed in the aftermath.
Cuban, who bought the Mavericks back in 2000 and is one of the country’s richest men, was accused of sexual assault back in April of 2011 after an alleged incident that took place at a venue called the Barrel Room in Portland, Oregon. The woman ultimately never filed charges and police found that there was insufficient evidence.
Here’s the description of the allegation, per the Willamette Week:
The woman told police she encountered Cuban in late April at the Barrel Room, at 105 NW 3rd Ave., and asked him to pose with her for a photograph. 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.
…”He then moved his hand down until it was on her buttocks,” according to McGuire’s summary of the alleged victim’s statement. “Cuban then 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.”
The Willamette Week interviewed the woman, who remains anonymous. She says that despite the fact no charges were filed, she stands behind her report “1,000 percent.”
“I filed the report because what he did was wrong,” she adds. “I stand behind that report 1,000 percent.”
Cuban, Wednesday morning, issued a short statement to the Associated Press. His comment? “It didn’t happen.”
