The Tannehills refused to comment beyond calling the incident a 'personal matter.' By Bernie Augustine / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, January 15, 2014, 6:29 P Lauren Tannehill left quite a surprise behind for the next driver of a rental car earlier this month. The model wife of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill reportedly forgot a $2,000 AR-15 rifle in the back seat of a Nissan SUV she rented on Jan. 4, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported Wednesday. No charges were filed, and the weapon is legally owned by the Dolphins quarterback. Through a Dolphins spokesman, the Tannehills called the incident a “personal matter” and didn’t comment further. 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. Ryan Tannehill's wife, Lauren, leaves this AR-15 rifle in the back seat of a rental car. 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.’” Ryan and Lauren Tannehill reportedly called E-Z Rent-A-Car to report a missing item from the Nissan Rogue the couple rented, but wouldn’t say what the missing item was. Fleissig sad that she and her daughter got out of the car — “we were kind of freaked out,” she told the paper — took a photo of it and went to the police station. The company that rented the car, E-Z Rent-A-Car, told the Sun-Sentinel that cars are cleaned out before they are rented out again. “I’m not sure how that could get past,” Charlie Graham, the company’s VP of business development, told the paper. The Tannehills immediately called the rental car company to report a missing item but wouldn’t specify what was missing, a source told the paper. “Though dangerous if it would have landed in the wrong hands, it’s not criminal,” Broward sherrif’s spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion told the Sun-Sentinel. Sandy Hook killer Adam Lanza used a variation of the AR-15, which was the weapon of choice of James E. Hooper in the 2012 Aurora, Colo., shooting that killed 12 and injured 70.
