Football legend Warren Moon was arrested on suspicion of DUI and driving with a suspended license early Friday morning, according to the Medina Police Department.
A Medina police officer spotted Moon’s vehicle on the Highway 520 Bridge at about 2:10 a.m. Friday and noticed it had expired tabs, said Medina police Lt. Dan Yourkoski.
Moon had a valid Texas driver’s license, but his driving privileges have been revoked in Washington, Yourkoski said.
Moon, 51, was arrested and taken to a Kirkland police station, where he was processed and released, Yourkoski said. A report will be sent to the King County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges, he said.
