Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill may have a rife for an arm, but it seems his wife actually has a rifle. Something the world found out this week when it was revealed that Lauren Tannehill left an AR-15 semiautomatic in the back seat of a rental car.
According to the Sun Sentinel, Lauren had returned a Nissan Rogue to E-Z Rent-A-Car on Jan. 4. Later that day, Judith Fleissig, a woman visiting South Florida from New York, rented the same Rogue. Apparently, two days passed before she noticed the weapon was sitting in the back. Fleissig subsequently turned it in to a nearby police station.
While there's no word yet if the rifle, which legally belongs to Lauren's husband, had been returned to its rightful owner, no charges are expeced to be filed. A spokesperson for the Dolphins released a statement saying, "The Tannehills view this as a personal matter."
But now that Lauren has gotten our attention, just who is she?
Well, the 26-year-old blond beauty met Ryan while they were both students at Texas A&M. They eventually married in 2012.
And while she was featured on the HBO reality sports documentary series Hard Knocks, the lovely lady is more than just an NFL wife, having done her fair share of modeling.
According to her modeling profile page, the 5'7" green-eyed hottie has done quite a bit of print work.
Oh, and if you think toting that rife around was a one-time deal, well, think again.
Ah, nothing like sharing a hobby.
