NFL quarterback’s wife leaves shocking AR-15 behind in rental car

It may be common to leave a pair of sunglasses in a rental car when returning it, but an AR-15?

That’s what happened to Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins’ quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The weapon, placed in the back of a rented vehicle, was found by the woman who rented the car next.

“This is certainly the kind of item you don’t want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime,” Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, Keyla Concepcion told the Miami Herald.

The find was quite a surprise, the Miami Herald reported:

According to a BSO report, Lauren Tannehill, 26, rented a Nissan Rogue from E-Z Rent-A-Car on Jan. 4. She had the vehicle for about two hours, then turned it in for another. That same day, Judith Fleissig, 58, of Rochester, N.Y., rented the same Rogue. She later found the gun, valued at $2,000, secured in its case in the back seat, according to the report.

“It was disturbing. I’m just glad somebody that had a little kid in the car or something didn’t find it. Or some criminal,” Judith Fleissig told Fox News.

The weapon was legally owned by the Tannehills so no charges will be filed. It was not clear whether the gun was returned.
