Sometimes a small amount of carelessness can lead to a serious situation. Recently, the spouse of Miami Dolphins Quarterback, Ryan Tannehill rented a means of transportation from E-Z Rent-A-Car and left behind a bag in the backseat.
When the next customer took the car for a ride to enjoy the Florida beach scene her heaven almost turned into a nightmare. She was a woman along with her daughter and the two planned to enjoy the vacation.
But to her surprise a bag in the back seat was unzipped by her daughter and it contained a large rifle. It was the sort of automatic weapon employed by the military. Besides informing the rental car company, she made a beeline for the nearest police station to report the incident.
After a while, the authorities found out that the wife of the football star, Lauren Tannehill had accidentally forgotten to remove this item from the back seat. The couple had a license to own such a weapon and they had out of mere forgetfulness left it behind in the vehicle. So it was not a criminal offense at all.
The E-Z Rent-A-Car administration has apologized for not having cleared the bag containing the deadly weapon from the back seat. Currently the assault rifle is in police custody and it is hoped the couple will come to collect it.
