TUNICA, Miss. (AP) Morgan Freeman says he was aboard his plane when it had to make an unexpected landing in Mississippi, but nobody was injured.

Mayor Bill Luckett of Clarksdale, a longtime friend of the actor, confirms the plane made a controlled forced landing before dark Saturday. Freeman released a statement saying he was headed to Texas to shoot a segment for the series "The Story of God."
