Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has been sued for sexual harassment from a woman who worked for his sports marketing firm, according to the Washington Post.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in Orange County, Calif., also alleges that Moon, 61, committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman's crotch during a trip to Seattle this year.
A publicist for Moon's company, Sports 1 Marketing of Irvine, California, did not return phone calls or an email seeking comment.
Haskell says when she voiced her concern over Moon's behavior, he threatened to replace her with someone who didn't object to his advances.
The woman, Wendy Haskell, was hired as Moon's executive assistant back in July and had traveled with him throughout multiple trips for speaking engagements and other events.
Moon spent three seasons with the Vikings from 1994 to 1996 after Minnesota acquired the quarterback in a trade with the Houston Oilers.
Despite spending his first six professional seasons in the CFL, Moon ranked third all-time in NFL passing yardage and fourth in touchdown passes thrown at the time of his retirement in 2000, according to his Pro Football Hall of Fame bio.
While he won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 1989 for his charity work, his actions in subsequent years paints quite a different picture of the man.
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.
Moon, 61, is now the color commentator for Seahawks games on the team's radio network.
Authorities in Texas charged Moon with assault anyway, but he was acquitted by a jury after his wife testified that she had provoked the fight.
"When she protested, he replied that she had to comply to keep her job and said that 'his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement'". They divorced in 2001.
Haskell's attorney told The Washington Post that her client wanted her name to be public.
Moon has been accused of sexual harassment and domestic violence in the past. "I think she was scared", she said.
