In a detailed report published Tuesday night, the Portland-based Willamette Week said a woman filed a complaint to the Portland Police Bureau against Cuban in 2011, claiming he had sexually assaulted her in a nightclub.
A woman accused Cuban of drunkenly shoving his hand down her trousers and penetrating her vagina at a downtown nightclub, prompting a police investigation, Willamette Week reported Tuesday night. The alleged victim told Willamette Week that she has moved on from the incident, but stands by her story.
On Feb. 20, Sports Illustrated published the findings of a lengthy investigation that uncovered a pattern of misogyny and predatory sexual misconduct within the Dallas Mavericks organization.
Cuban, while being investigated by police for the alleged assault, expressed panic at the idea of being accused and uncertainty of how to defend himself. "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".
The allegation dates back to 2011, when Cuban was in Portland while the Mavs played the Trail Blazers in the first round of the playoffs.
"In summary, there is no evidence to corroborate the complainant's statement and there is evidence contradicting the claim", the memo concluded.

A detective in the case described two of the photos as "significant" in his report, according to Willamette Week.
Cuban steadfastly denies the accusation throughout the conversation and re-iterated his denial in a statement to the Week. "In one of the pictures, his arm can be seen behind [the alleged victim] and it appears Cuban is reaching down toward her buttocks".
According to Portland Police Department documents obtained by Willamette Week, a woman ran into Cuban while out on the town with her boyfriend following a Mavericks game against the Portland Trailblazers in April 2011.
Prosecutors declined to purse the case due to lack of evidence.
Cuban: I mean, wouldn't she have said something to somebody? "Cuban and no one observed any inappropriate behavior by Mr. Cuban". The woman appeared to have a "look of surprise and strain" in some of the photos, the officer noted.
