Whoops! The wife of an NFL quarterback got a little sloppy in keeping up with her firearm.

Lauren Tannehill, wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, forgot her semi-automatic AR-15 rifle in a rental car.

Forgetting your weapon somewhere isn’t a crime, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. But it was a little shocking for the next person who rented the car and discovered the rifle.

“It was disturbing to find it. I’m just glad you know that somebody didn’t have a little kid in the car or something. Or some criminal. Oh great a gun! I can go do something with it,” said Judith Fleissig, mother of the person who found it.

“This certainly isn’t the kind of item you want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime,” said Broward County Heriff’s Office spokesperson Keyla Concepcion.

It was unclear late Wednesday whether the Tannehills had retrieved their gun.
