Just ask Lauren Tannehill, the supermodel wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

She rented a white Nissan Rogue earlier this month at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport before returning it to the company two hours later in exchange for a different vehicle. There was just one problem: she forgot to grab her AR-15.

The vehicle was subsequently rented by a New York woman and her daughter, but they drove it for two days before spotting the bag that contained the weapon. Alarmed, the woman's daughter quickly jumped out of the vehicle to get away from the weapon.

Authorities said the weapon is legally owned and "not criminal." The Sun Sentinel noted that Lauren Tannehill frequently posts photos on Twitter that show her shooting guns with her husband.
