Former Footballer Warren Moon Arrested for DUI in Washington

Former NFL Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon was arrested for suspicion of Washington DUI around 2:00 am Friday after police stopped him for speeding in downtown Kirkland.

According to the police report, Washington State Patrol officers suspected the presence of alcohol and Moon was arrested. He was taken to the Kirkland police station to test his blood alcohol level. Results of the breath test will not be released until charges are filed by the King County prosecutor’s office. Moon’s vehicle was impounded.

The 50-year-old Moon played at the University of Washington, and was the most valuable player during a Rose Bowl victory over Michigan in 1978. He started his pro career playing for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League, leading the team to five consecutive Grey Cup victories. Moon played 17 seasons in the NFL with the Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. He retired after the 2001 season. He was elected to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio last August.

Recently, Moon has been an analyst on Seattle Seahawks radio broadcasts.
