MORRISVILLE, N.C. - A private jet carrying Canadian comedian and actor Russell Peters, who had just performed in North Carolina, had to make an emergency landing at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

News outlets cite an Instagram post from Peters, who says the plane suffered a flat tire while taking off late Wednesday night. He says the pilot made the announcement 30 minutes into a flight to Texas on the way back to Los Angeles.

The pilot burned off some fuel before making a bumpy landing at 1:30 a.m. Peters says no one was hurt.

RDU officials say there were seven people on board. Peters and his crew were able to take a later commercial flight.

Peters had made a stop on his "Deported World Tour" at the Durham Performing Arts Center on Wednesday.
