Authorities say the wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill left a rifle in the back of a rental SUV in South Florida earlier this month.
The Broward Sheriff's Office reported Wednesday that Lauren Tannehill rented a Nissan Rogue from EZ Rental Car at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport the afternoon of Jan. 4. She returned about two hours later to swap the Rogue for a different car, but authorities say she left behind an LMT AR-15, which was secured in a case.
The New York Daily News reports the woman who rented the vehicle after and found the weapon was Judith Fleissig of Rochester. Employees told her to turn it over to police, which she did.
No charges are expected to be filed.
A Dolphins spokesman says the Tannehills view this as a personal matter.
