Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank judge Mark Cuban was investigated in 2011 on allegations of sexual assault in Portland, according to a report from Willamette Week.

The woman in the case claimed Cuban reached inside her trousers and penetrated her vagina with his finger while they were posing for a picture in a Portland nightclub.

The woman told the Willamette Week in a recent interview she still stood by the charges.

In an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday, Cuban wrote, "It didn't happen".

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. Ditto for then-Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love and former Blazers television reporter Lindsay McCormick, whom Cuban told police had been with him at the bar. "I stand behind that report 1,000 percent".

Cuban has denied the allegations.

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

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.

One appeared to show Cuban reaching toward the woman's buttocks. One image is described as "Cuban reaching down towards her buttocks".

McGuire also noted the alleged victim's expression: "Her teeth are clenched, eyes wider than the other pictures and brow raised showing a look of surprise and strain".

According to the memo, Cuban was asked three questions in the polygraph exam: "While in the bar did you commit any sexual act?"

Cuban: I mean, wouldn't she have said something to somebody? 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.

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".
