Lauren Tannehill, the wife of Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, left an AR-15 rifle in the backseat of a returned rental car.

Lauren Tannehill Forgets AR-15

Tannehill, 26, had rented a Nissan Rogue from a local car rental on Jan. 4. Not long after taking the car off the lot, she returned it for another vehicle. Hours later, a 58-year-old woman from Rochester, N.Y., was assigned to the Rogue Tannehill had left behind. She was shocked to find the gun in the back seat.

"We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out,” the woman, Judith Flessing, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I didn't want to touch it.” Flessing ultimately turned the firearm over to the authorities.

Tannehills Not In Legal Trouble

The Tannehills, who had eventually called the car dealership to report the forgotten AR-15, don’t stand to be in any legal trouble. “This is certainly the kind of item you don't want to forget anywhere,” said Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion. “But forgetting isn't a crime.”

Ryan and Lauren Tannehil married in January 2012 after three years of dating. They met while attending Texas A&M.
