Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill recently left her AR-15 rifle in a rental car, the Miami Herald reports.

On the 4th of January, Mrs Tannehill rented a Nissan Rouge from a E-Z Rent A Car. She returned the car later that day but neglected to remove her rifle, which was then found by the next customer.

A Florida law enforcement official remarked: “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 said.

Judith Fleissig, a New York resident then found the weapon when she took out the car later in the day.

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

Mr Tannehill won eight games as the signal-caller in Miami this year, his second in the league.

The Tannehill's immediately called the car rental company upon realising their mistake. The couple are viewing this as a personal issue.

Ryan Tannehill married Lauren, whom he met whilst at Texas A&M University in January 2012.

Tannehill was the eighth overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.
