This is Getting Ugly for Mark Cuban

Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban was investigated in 2011 on allegations of sexual assault in Portland, according to a report from Willamette Week.

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.

"I filed the report because what he did was wrong".

Cuban, Wednesday morning, issued a short statement to the Associated Press. Sneed has reportedly been fired since the publication of Sports Illustrated's report.

According to the report, Cuban was in town in May 2011 when he went to a local nightclub where the alleged victim, who did not want to be named, approached him for a photo. 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.

"According to the detailed prosecution decline memo, investigators interviewed the complainant's boyfriend and female friend, as well as employees and patrons of the bar, and other persons with Mr". "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

She also submitted seven pictures as evidence, two of which were described as "significant" by McGuire.

Cuban denied the allegation at the time, passed a polygraph test and hired a lawyer who cited the opinion of two urologists at George Washington University Medical School who claimed he could not have sexually assaulted the woman.

One appeared to show Cuban reaching toward the woman's buttocks.

"It was apparent he was very drunk", the woman's friend later told police.

"The case detective and the complainant both agree with the conclusion there is no corroborative evidence to support the complainant's allegation", wrote senior deputy DA Don Rees on July 27, 2011, via Williamette Weekly.

The report included claims of inappropriate sexual conduct by former CEO Terdema Ussery and raised questions about what Cuban knew and when.
