Ryan Tannehill's wife leaves rifle in rented car

Wednesday, January 15, 2014 | 7:54 p.m. CST

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Authorities said Wednesday 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 a car rental company 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.

That same night, the car was rented to another woman, who found the gun and contacted the rental company. Employees told her to turn it over to police, which she did.

No charges are expected to be filed.

A Dolphins spokesman said the Tannehills view this as a personal matter.
