Mavericks' Mark Cuban Denies Sexual Assault Allegation From 2011 In Portland

The Williamette Week says it has obtained the transcript of a profanity-ridden phone conversation in which a Portland, Ore. police detective tells Mavericks owner Mark Cuban that a woman has accused him of sexual assault.

The allegation, detailed in police reports quoted in Oregon's Willamette Week newspaper yesterday, involved Cuban reaching down the backside of a woman's trousers and penetrating her vagina during a photo snapshot at a crowded Portland nightclub. Willamette Week reports that prosecutors did not press charges after finding insufficient evidence to support the woman's claims.

"It didn't happen", he wrote Tuesday night in an email to The Dallas-Morning-News.

Sneed has since been fired and Cuban told Sports Illustrated that human resources director Buddy Pittman has also been given his marching orders after further details of the report emerged. "I stand behind that report 1,000%". Thugh his accuser stands by her claims years later, Cuban denies anything happened. His attorney, Stephen Houze, told WW that the accusations are "false" and that the case was thoroughly investigated.

Prosecutors declined to purse the case due to lack of evidence. They were described by an officer as showing Cuban, whose hands were not visible, appearing to "be stretching to reach his arm down" while standing beside the woman.

Meanwhile, Cuban "repeatedly and adamantly denied" the woman's allegations during a voluntary recorded interview with a Portland police detective, according to the memo.

"It was apparent he was very drunk", the woman's friend later told police. "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 story alleged that Mavericks CEO and president Terdema Ussery is notorious for sexual harassment and put the spotlight on other Mavericks staff members as sexual harassment perpetrators. 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.
