WSOP Finalist Darvin Moon No Saint

He may wear a New Orleans Saints cap when playing at this year's World Series of Poker (WSOP) but court records indicate that finalist Darvin Moon is no saint.  Like last year's WSOP finalist, David "Chino" Rheem, Moon has had some run-ins with the law.

Maryland court records show that the logger from Oakland, Maryland plead guilty in 2003 to forgery and theft and for three counts of passing bad checks in 2004.  A criminal harassment charge in 2007 was dropped.  He has also plead guilty to open burning and failed to appear in court for various traffic violations. 

Gambling911.com's own Jenny Woo confirmed with the Hollywood, Florida police last year that they would not attempt to arrest Rheem during play of the World Series of Poker event.  It was determined that he had an active arrest warrant.  Moon might not be so lucky.  While he doesn't have any arrest warrants pending, what he does have is liens and creditors will almost certainly want a piece of his 2009 WSOP winnings.

Nevertheless, it's just a drop in the bucket for Moon, who stands to walk away with a cool couple of million regardless of where he places after Monday night's play.  He owes just over $30,000 in debts according to court papers.
