Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Lauren Tannehill isn’t known for having a rifle of an arm.

But his wife is now known for arming herself with a rifle on occasion.

According to Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion, via The Miami Herald, Lauren Tannehil forgot to remove her AR-15 from the back seat of her Nissan Rogue this month.

“This is certainly the kind of item you don’t want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime, said Concepcion, who explained what happened:


Lauren rented the vehicle from E-Z Rent-A-Car on January 4. She drive it for about two hours and then turned it in for another car.

Later that day, Judith Fleissig of Rochester, New York rented the same Rogue and found the gun, valued at $2,000, secured in its case in the back seat.

“We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out,” Fleissig told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “I didn’t want to touch it.”

Lauren, who legally owns the weapon, reportedly called the rental car company as soon as she realized it was missing.

Tannehill is a 26-year old Texas A&M graduate, an occasional model and – as you can see above – a fan of firearms.
