This is Getting Ugly for Mark Cuban

Report PPB investigated Mark Cuban for sex assault in 2011

Report PPB investigated Mark Cuban for sex assault in 2011

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban flatly denies an allegation of sexual assault made against him in 2011, an incident detailed in the Willamette (Ore, ) Week in which he was never charged.

The Willamette Week, an alternative weekly newspaper in Portland, Oregon, recently published a report that stated in 2011, Portland police investigated Cuban for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman in a nightclub.

WW obtained the transcript of a Portland Police detective's interview with Cuban.

He also voluntarily passed a polygraph test, according to the report. The woman, who was not identified in the article, told Willamette Week, "I really left it in the past".

Wilder remains undefeated with 10th-round KO of Ortiz
Wilder claims promoter Eddie Hearn fears a Joshua loss to Wilder would end the stadium-filling slugger's big money spectacles. A exhausted Wilder was able to move his way through the eighth round following a seventh round in which Ortiz badly hurt him.

Cuban spoke to police directly following the report being filed. "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

Cuban steadfastly denies the accusation throughout the conversation and re-iterated his denial in a statement to the Week. She said she told her friend and boyfriend the same night about the alleged incident.

However, the new report comes at a particularly inopportune time for Cuban, as it follows a high-profile Sports Illustrated report, published two weeks ago, detailing "a corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behavior" in the Dallas Mavericks organization.

She also submitted seven pictures as evidence, two of which were described as "significant" by McGuire. "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks".

Buying Qualcomm would make Broadcom the third-largest chip maker, behind Intel Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. The annual meeting will be reconvened at 8:00am PST in San Diego, California, on April 5th .

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". "The complainant requested documentation and investigation of her complaint but has confirmed with me she will not participate in a criminal prosecution and agrees her claim can not be proven".

Cuban: I mean, wouldn't she have said something to somebody? "In this case have you lied to your attorney in any way?" They provided written opinions claiming that it would have been impossible for Cuban to penetrate the woman's vagina with his finger given the circumstances of the alleged incident.

Explaining their decision in a report, prosecutors wrote that "there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim", and that the woman chose not to proceed with her claim.
