We all get forgetful sometimes but a gun seems like the last thing you’d want to leave behind! Ryan Tannehill’s wife, Lauren, accidentally left the couple’s legally-owned AR-15 Rifle in the backseat of a rental car, where it was later discovered by the next customer.

Lauren Tannehill, 26, rented a Nissan Rogue for a couple of hours on Jan. 4, but she forgot one very important thing when she returned car. Later that day, Judith Fleissig, 58, of Rochester, N.Y., rented the same Rogue and was shocked to find Lauren’s rifle in the backseat!

Luckily Lauren is not in any trouble because she and husband Ryan Tannehill legally own the weapon.

Lauren Leaves Rifle In Rental Car

“This is certainly the kind of item you don’t want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime,” Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion told the Miami Herald.

The paper reports:

According to a BSO report, Lauren Tannehill, 26, rented a Nissan Rogue from E-Z Rent-A-Car on Jan. 4. She had the vehicle for about two hours, then turned it in for another. That same day, Judith Fleissig, 58, of Rochester, N.Y., rented the same Rogue. She later found the gun, valued at $2,000, secured in its case in the back seat, according to the report.

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

Lauren & Ryan Tannehill Say Rifle Incident Is A ‘Personal Matter’

When Lauren realized she had forgotten the rifle, she and Ryan immediately called the rental car company to report a missing item, although they didn’t reveal what the item  was, a source told the Sun-Sentinel. The Tannehills say they feel the incident is a “personal matter,” a Dolphins spokesman told the paper.

Well, the important thing is that the gun made its way back to its rightful owners without anyone getting hurt. We’re sure Lauren won’t make a mistake like this again!
