Mark Cuban passed lie detector test for 2011 sexual assault allegation

Mark Cuban was investigated for sexually assaulting woman in 2011

Weeks after the Dallas Mavericks found themselves grappling with a major sexual misconduct scandal, owner Mark Cuban has also come under the microscope over a 2011 allegation of sexual assault in a nightclub.

League spokesman Mike Bass said Wednesday the National Basketball Association was looking into the matter after a weekly alternative newspaper in Portland, Oregon, reported a woman's claim that Cuban put his hands down her trousers and touched her inappropriately while they were taking a photo at a Portland nightclub. The claim is that Cuban allegedly thrust his hand down the back of her trousers and "penetrated her vagina". He says he was never charged, after he passed a polygraph test and police determined there was insufficient evidence.

The woman also provided Portland Police with seven photos, two of which McGuire reportedly deemed "significant".

But she told Willamette Week she stands behind her claim "1,000 per cent".

She told police that Cuban initially placed his right hand on her lower back.

Through his lawyer, Stephen Houze, Cuban reiterated his denial.

This news comes a week after Sports Illustrated revealed that there was an ongoing investigation within the Mavericks organization that was described as a "corporate culture rife with misogyny and predatory sexual behaviour". "It didn't happen", he wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Tuesday. "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".

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

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. "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.

Furthermore, they added, "There is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim".
