Dolphins QB's wife Lauren Tannehill leaves rifle in rental car

Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has a beautiful model for a wife, Lauren, and she likes to shoot guns. Apparently she left a large rifle in a rental car recently, and it startled the New York mother and daughter who rented the car after her.

From the Sun Sentinel:

The AR-15 semiautomatic had been left behind by model Lauren Tannehill, the wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

“We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out,” Judith Fleissig recalls of the moment this month when she and her daughter found the weapon. “I didn’t want to touch it.”

Fleissig on Jan. 6 turned over the gun to the closest police station, following the rental company’s recommendation, officials said.

It took the mother and daughter several days to find the gun in the backseat. They hadn’t gone into the trunk because the airline had lost their luggage.

Thinking they would just call the owner, they searched for an ID, but there was none, she said. Her daughter unzipped the bag and said, “‘Oh my God, it’s a gun.’ I said, ‘I think I’m going to throw up,’” Fleissig said.

Fleissig said she and her daughter jumped out of the car to get away from the gun. “I took a picture, zipped it back up and went to the police station. They came out and took it.”
