A wrestler in the WWE put Budget Rental Car on blast after finding what he says was a loaded handgun in the glove compartment.
The wrestler, Shelton Benjamin, posted a photo on Twitter showing what we determined is a Ruger LC9 pistol. The 9mm handgun was pictured inside a black carry bag, and had an unloaded magazine tucked in beside it. Benjamin tagged the car rental company in his post, and also had a few choice words for them as well:
Thank you @Budget (LIT) for your great service of putting my reputation, freedom and quite possibly my life in jeopardy I’ve unknowingly been driving your car around the last 4 days with a F’N LOADED GUN in the Glove compartment!!🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 pic.twitter.com/NZj7GmtA8V

Budget did respond to the SmackDown wrestler’s tweet, and noted that they contacted law enforcement and handed the matter over to them:
Hi Shelton! We are truly sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation. We have turned this matter over to local law enforcement for an appropriate investigation. ~April
