A few days ago, a Reddit user posted the above picture of a rifle, claiming his friend had found it in the back seat of a rental car near the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., airport. Who could possibly have forgotten such a large and terrifying weapon in a rental car? Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill's wife, it turns out.
According to the Sun Sentinel, the AR-15 belongs to Lauren Tannehill, and is valued at $2,000. The gun is legally owned, and the Broward County Sheriff's office says Lauren simply forgot the gun when she swapped her original rental car for a different one. We've all been there.
But the question remains: Why the hell was Lauren Tannehill driving around with such a ridiculous gun? (One Reddit user helpfully identified all of the rifle's high-tech and expensive attachments). We'll probably never know, but at least we are all now aware that trying to carjack Lauren Tannehill would be a very bad idea.
