    “Shark Tank” investor and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban claimed on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time” that he heard Ahmed Mohamed’s sister giving him answers during their phone conversation. Mohamed is the 14-year-old student who was arrested last week for bringing what his teacher thought was a bomb but was actually a homemade clock. Cuban said of his interaction with Mohamed:

    “I talked to the kid — he’s from Dallas — and I’ve talked to the people in the school district. The kid is a super smart kid, science geek. We talked about science, but while I’m talking to him on the phone, as I ask him a question, ‘Tell me what happened,’ because I’m curious, right? His sister, over his shoulder, you could hear listening to the question, giving him the answer. So I don’t know all the details of what happened, but what I do know, when I talked to him about science, when I talked to him about magnets, when I talked to him about creating things, he was very, very engaged.”

    Cuban goes on to clarify the events that took place leading up to Mohamed’s arrest earlier last week.
