The wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, Lauren, apparently had a very blonde moment recently, as she reportedly dropped off a rental car with a big surprise for its next driver – a $2,000 AR-15 rifle.
Lauren left the rifle in the back seat of a Nissan SUV she rented on Jan. 4, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday.
Per a Dolphins’ spokesperson, the Tannehills are calling this a “personal matter”. In other words, leave us alone. Luckily the semi-automatic rifle is legally owned by Ryan and no charges will or have been filed.
Per the New York Daily News: ‘According to the report, Lauren Tannehill rented a Nissan Rogue on Jan. 4, only to exchange it for another car a few hours later. The Rogue was then rented to Judith Fleissig of Rochester, N.Y., three hours after Tannehill returned it. Fleissig was in the area with her daughter who was interviewing for a pediatric residency program in Miami.
Two days after picking the car up, Fleissig’s daughter discovered the gun. “Oh my God, it’s a gun,” Fleissig recalled her daughter saying. “I said, ‘I think I’m going to throw up.’”
