Moon's attorney, John Coyle, said, “He accepts responsibility for what occurred and continues to work on conquering his alcoholism.”

In Logan County District Court, Moon faces a misdemeanor charge of posing as a police officer.

In Oklahoma County District Court, he faces felony counts of attempted extortion and threatening a violent act and a misdemeanor count of assault and battery. He is accused in the felony case of trying to force attorney James Pasquali to repay a legal fee to another man at the bar.

Pasquali testified at a disciplinary hearing that Moon threatened to run a pen through his neck.

“He said, ‘I'll put you through a shredder.' He said, ‘Nobody will ever find anything of you except for your tooth.'” Pasquali testified. “This went on and on and on … Every time I tried to get up he'd grab me … and he'd jerk me back down in the chair and pull me down. He'd pull me real close to his face … I felt like he was very dangerous and I felt very much in fear of my life.”
