Uh oh, Warren Moon might be on some serious trouble.
A California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit alleging that the former star quarterback allegedly drugged, threatened and grabbed her.
According to the Washington Post:
The lawsuit which was filed Monday in Orange County, California, alleges that the 61-year old Moon committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman’s crotch during a trip to Seattle earlier this year. The suit also accuses Moon of pulling the woman’s bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drunk during a separate trip to Mexico in October.
The woman accusing Moon is 32-year old Wendy Haskell, who was hired by Moon to be his executive assistant in July and traveled with him on a weekly basis for speaking engagements, charity events and personal appearances, lawsuits says. She claims that she was demoted by the firm in October after she complained about Moon’s sexual advances.
Moon also required Haskell to stay in his hotel room during business trips, sleep in the same bed and wear “skimpy thong lingerie bottoms” as nightclothes. When she protested, he replied that she had to comply to keep her job and said that “his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement,” the lawsuit states.
This isn’t the first time Moon has been accused of sexual harassment. In May of 1995, he was sued by a Vikings cheerleader who claimed that he offered her cash for sex. The case was settled out of court days later. Two months after that, Moon was arrested in Texas after his wife, Felicia, told police that he had slapped and choked her in their Houston home.
The couple reconciled their differences and his wife declined to press charges.
Meanwhile, the plaintiff, Wendy Haskell refused to comment on the lawsuit but her attorney, Diana L. Fitzgerald said Haskell did not report any of Moon’s conduct, including the alleged sexual battery to police because she was scared.
