NFL Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon accused of sexual harassment

Postado Dezembro 07, 2017

A woman filed a lawsuit in Orange County, California, alleging Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon sexually harassed her, the Washington Post's Craig Whitlock reported Wednesday.

A woman claimed Moon grabbed her crotch during a business trip to Seattle earlier this year, required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during other business trips and pulled off her bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a business trip to Mexico in October.

The woman, Wendy Haskell, was working as a publicist for Sports 1 Marketing, a company owned by Moon.

Haskill also alleges that she filed a complaint to the company about Moon's behavior in October and was demoted, per Whitlock.

Former Houston Oilers quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer Warren Moon is being sued for sexual harassment.

Moon eventually got a chance to play for the Houston Oilers in 1984 and would put up huge passing numbers in the "run and shoot" offense.

This is not the first claim against Moon, who earned the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year honors in 1989.

The latest disturbing sexual harassment allegations are against famed former NCAA, CFL and National Football League quarterback and current Seattle Seahawks' broadcaster Warren Moon (seen above during agent Leigh Steinberg's 2017 Super Bowl party). A harassment case brought by a Minnesota Vikings cheerleader was settled out of court in 1994, and was arrested in 1995 after a domestic abuse call from his wife. He was charged with assault and eventually acquitted by a jury after Felicia stood by him during the trial.

Moon co-founded Sports 1 Marketing in 2010 and serves as its president.

According to the lawsuit, Haskell complained about the job requirements on multiple occasions, but was told by Moon that if she didn't want to do what was asked of her, then he'd "find someone else who was" willing.

Haskell declined to comment through her attorney, Diana Fitzgerald of Miami, Florida.

Fitzgerald said Haskell did not report any of Moon's conduct, including the alleged sexual battery, to police.

She says in the lawsuit that "Moon had a dark and twisted side that commanded far more than just executive assistant services from his newly hired employee". "I think she was scared", she said.
