Freeman released a statement saying,

“Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on takeoff, which caused other problems.But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch. I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety.”

Freeman was actually the only passenger on the plane when the plane’s tire blew. According to TMZ, it is not clear as to whether or not the planes runway was too small for the jet or if the hydraulic system on the jet used the breaking system to crash but the plane wound up landing in a dirt field. Lucky everyone made it out safe and no one was. Now Mr. Freeman can continue his segment in peace.
