Sexual Assault Claim Against Mark Cuban Resurfaces After 7 Years

Billionaire and television personality Mark Cuban has been accused of sexual assault, according to a bombshell report by Willamette Weekly.

A woman accused Cuban of drunkenly shoving his hand down her trousers and penetrating her vagina at a downtown nightclub, prompting a police investigation, Willamette Week reported Tuesday night.

The woman claimed Cuban reached inside her trousers and penetrated her vagina with his finger while they were taking a picture in a Portland nightclub.

Police found insufficient evidence in the case, dropping any charge in July 2011.

Cuban also voluntarily underwent and passed a polygraph test administered by a former Miami Police detective, the report said. The woman, who was not identified in the article, told Willamette Week, "I really left it in the past".

"I filed the report because what he did was wrong". "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

"These allegations are thoroughly investigated by the Multnomah County District's Attorney's Office and the Portland Police Bureau", Houze said in the statement.

Houza added that, "This incident never happened and her accusations are false".

Prosecutors declined to purse the case due to lack of evidence.

New allegations have come to light, this time directly accusing Cuban of sexual assault. 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". However, if this suddenly turns into a cascade of allegations as has happened with many other prominent men in the #MeToo movement, then it goes without saying Cuban and the National Basketball Association would be embroiled in very problematic circumstances. One image is described as "Cuban reaching down towards her buttocks".

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.

The two doctors, both from the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences in Washington, D.C., reviewed the allegations in the case.

Prosecutors wrote that "there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim".
