Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, left an AR-15 rifle in the back of her rental car in Miami earlier this month. She had nothing else in the back of the car and simply forgot the large, military grade rifle was back there when she returned the car to E-Z Rent-A-Car.
Judith Fleissig and her daughter were vacationing from New York when they found the large weapon in the back of their rental car.
According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Fleissig said, “We got out of the car, we were kind of freaked out, I didn’t want to touch it.” Beyond shocked, they called the police and returned the gun to the nearest police station.
According to Bleacher Report, E-Z Rent-A-Car’s Vice President of Business Development, Charlie Graham, assured that all cars are cleaned after every rental and was shocked as to how an employee missed the rifle.
Although the situation was scary and potentially dangerous, no criminal charges were filed. Ryan Tannehill would not comment on the situation, calling it a personal matter.
