A security employee, that worked at the bar where an alleged sexual assault by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took place back in 2011, has come forward with details from that night.
According to Christopher White, he saw the woman, who alleges she was sexually assaulted by Cuban, jump away from him after posing for a picture with the intoxicated owner.
Via The Oregonian:
Christopher White said he saw the NBA basketball team owner in the Barrel Room with his entourage and witnessed Cuban putting his arm around a woman for a photo.
“She jumped away like she was not happy with him,” White, 33, said in an interview Wednesday with The Oregonian/OregonLive. “That’s when the energy in the room kind of exploded.”
The woman, whose name has not been released, claimed Cuban shoved his hand down the back of her jeans and penetrated her vagina with his finger. Cuban denies doing so.
White’s account of the events seems to backup what the woman who claims she was assaulted says occurred, he added:
“I didn’t have a camera on his hand,” said White, who held various positions at the Northwest Third Avenue club between 2010 and 2014. “But it sure looked like it was too low to be just on her back.”
Cuban did pass a lie detector about the incident. But if he was as drunk as others have claimed, it is possible he was blacked out and doesn’t honestly remember.
White also says Cuban was “gropey” towards other women at the bar.
Cuban would point his finger at women with whom he wanted to be photographed and beckoned them, White said. The way Cuban touched some of the women struck White as inappropriate because his hands moved well below the middle of their backs, he said.
“He was, like, really kind of gropey toward them,” White said. “It just wasn’t how you’d normally pose in a picture with someone.”
Something tells me we haven’t heard the last of this.
