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

Billionaire and television personality Mark Cuban has been accused of sexual assault, according to a bombshell report by Willamette Weekly.

A late-February Sports Illustrated report documented the Dallas Mavericks' workplace culture, which was allegedly rife with sexual misconduct.

Late Tuesday, the Portland-based Willamette Week reported an April 2011 incident in which Cuban allegedly thrust his hand down the back of a woman's trousers while posing for a photograph, according to a police report later obtained by WFAA.

Cuban spoke to police directly following the report being filed.

The report was obtained through a public records request.

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'.

The woman declined to proceed with the allegation at the time but she still contends he did what she accuses him of doing.

The woman, however, stood by her claim while speaking to the Willamette Week. "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

A week later, the alleged victim filed a complaint with the local police, which led to an investigation. 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 flatly denied the allegation, telling the Associated Press on Tuesday: "It didn't happen".

In his 2011 memo, Rees wrote that investigators interviewed friends of the woman with her at the nightclub as well as employees and other patrons. HuffPost has reached out to Cuban for additional comment. Then, reports surfaced that Cuban knew about the abusive past of one of the Mavericks' top employees, yet still made a decision to let him keep his job. The woman appeared to have a "look of surprise and strain" in some of the photos, the officer noted.
