Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman almost seven years ago, according to a police report that was made public this week. "Cuban then pushed his hand down the back of her jeans and inside her underwear where he cupped his hand over her groin area and inserted the tip of his finger into her vagina". 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.
Through his lawyer, Stephen Houze, Cuban reiterated his denial.
Though originally presented to police in 2011, the accuser came forward this week, saying she did so because "What he did was wrong".
Prosecutors reportedly said the woman decided in the end not to pursue the allegation.

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. While Cuban wasn't implicated, the SI report raised questions about what he knew and when.
The Multnomah County District Attorney's ultimately declined to press charges, citing insufficient evidence.
