KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon was arrested for investigation of drunken driving after a trooper stopped him for allegedly speeding, the State Patrol said.

Moon, 50, was stopped at about 2 a.m. Friday in downtown Kirkland, State Patrol Trooper Courtney Stewart said Tuesday.

The former University of Washington and Seattle Seahawks quarterback was arrested and taken to the Kirkland Police Department for processing, and was later released. His vehicle was impounded, Stewart said.

The case has been forwarded to King County prosecutors for possible criminal charges, Stewart said, adding that the patrol is not allowed to release the details of Moon's blood-alcohol level test.

Moon played 17 seasons and 208 games in the NFL with the Houston Oilers, Minnesota Vikings, Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs. When he retired after the 2001 season, Moon ranked third in passing attempts, completions, yardage and total offense.

He entered the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, in August, and has been an analyst on Seahawks' radio broadcasts for the past three seasons.

In 1978, Moon led Washington to a 27-20 Rose Bowl victory over Michigan. Before moving to the NFL in 1984, Moon led the Canadian Football League's Edmonton Eskimos to five straight Grey Cup victories.

No one is perfect... just remember that ok?
Everyone makes mistakes every day.. You just got to learn from them and I hope that Mr. Moon does just that.. he seems like such a class act to me..

Sad...Moon always seemed like a nice guy for the most part (as well as being a great player) but he clearly has some problems and needs to get help ASAP.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. There are quite a few men in the NFL who put on a good show in public, but are very different when the fans and cameras aren't around. If you ever get a chance, talk to a beat writer for a major pro team. Once you've done that, you'll be able to look at the players with a much better understanding on who they really are.

anyways, he blew a .06, which means he wasnt legally intoxicated (equivalent to 1 beer) and charges of dui may be dropped.

I think instead of putting him in the slammer if the charges aren't dropped, a fair sentence would be making him sit in a room with no windows for a solid week and blasting the "Luv Ya Blue" song. :yuck: :crazy01:
