Moon’s Wife Testifies

Compiled From Wire Services

Warren Moon’s wife testified the Minnesota Vikings quarterback grabbed and choked her during a bedroom fight that began in an argument over credit cards and money.

Felicia Moon was called by prosecutors during Warren Moon’s misdemeanor assault trial despite her insistence she would not testify against him. She said the two wrestled July 18 after she threw credit cards at him. Feisty and defiant during prosecutor Mike Elliott’s questioning, Felicia Moon said when Moon pursued and grabbed her, she kneed him in the groin and then fell backward to the floor.

Judge Larry Wagenbach overruled a prosecution motion to make Felicia Moon a hostile witness.
