  • Report: Mark Cuban investigated in 2011 for sexual assault at Portland nightclub

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.

Following the complaint, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office launched an investigation but determined there was insufficient evidence to press criminal charges.

The woman also reportedly provided Portland Police with seven photos, two of which Detective McGuire deemed "significant". She says that despite the fact no charges were filed, she stands behind her report "1,000 percent".

Cuban spoke to police directly following the report being filed. "Cuban. This incident never happened and her accusations are false".

The allegations come weeks after Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim and Jessica Luther published an investigation that highlighted a "corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior". "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 woman declined to proceed with the allegation at the time but she still contends he did what she accuses him of doing.

McGuire also noted the alleged victim's expression: "Her teeth are clenched, eyes wider than the other pictures and brow raised showing a look of surprise and strain".

Washington Net Neutrality Bill Signed Into Law, Oregon On Deck

"She will not participate in a criminal prosecution and agrees her claim can not be proven", the memo reads.

Cuban, she said, appeared "very drunk".

According to the memo, Cuban was asked three questions in the polygraph exam: "While in the bar did you commit any sexual act?"

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

Cuban continues to deny the incident.

In a report explaining why they weren't pursuing the case, prosecutors wrote that "there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim".
