Warren Moon Accused of Sexually Assaulting, Harassing, Drugging Assistant

07 December 2017

Oh, and he's on the board of trustees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It also includes that Moon allegedly pulled off Haskell's bathing suit and slipped a drug in her drink during a trip to Mexico in October. She alleges that she reported Moon's alleged sexual harassment to Sports 1 Marketing CEO David Meltzer.

Moon is now in his 13th season as a game analyst on the Seahawks' radio team.

She said she was demoted by the firm in October after filing a complaint about Moon's behavior.

As an Eskimo, Moon won two Grey Cup MVP awards and became the first professional football player to pass for 5,000 yards in 1982. He's best known for putting up record passing numbers with the then Houston Oilers from 1984-1993, but also starred for Minnesota, Seattle and Kansas City during a career that eventually landed him in Canton back in 2006.

Moon, 61, has a history of off-field issues with women.

In May 1995, he was sued by a Vikings cheerleader who accused him of sexual harassment, alleging that he offered her cash for sex. That case was settled soon after its filing.

Moon was accused of striking his then wife, Felicia Moon, on the head with an open hand and choking her to the point that she nearly lost consciousness before she escaped from the couple's home in July 1995. After Moon was arrested, he called his reaction to their argument a "tremendous mistake". He reconciled with his wife, who declined to press charges. The couple divorced in 2001.

Haskell's lawsuit claims that Moon "committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman's crotch during a trip to Seattle this year".

The former Oilers great and Canadian Football League legend told her she had to comply to retain her job and "his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement", the lawsuit says.

Haskell's attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald, told the Washington Post that her client didn't report anything to police at the time because she was probably "scared".

Moon has been accused of sexual misconduct in the past. He was charged, but later acquitted when his wife said she had provoked the fight.

"She was expecting to further her career in the sports marketing industry", Fitzgerald added.

"Whenever Ms. Haskell expressed reservations about these outrageous "job duties", Moon insisted this was "just the way it is", and threatened Ms. Haskell that unless she was "comfortable" with him, he'd "find someone else who was".
