Piedmont 4560 had to make a belly landing at Newark Airport early Saturday morning at around 1:00AM local time.  The flight crew could not get the landing gear to come down.  There were no injuries.

You can see the FlightAware track here:

There does not appear to be any audio available for this flight; the various KEWR feeds may have been down at the time of the incident.
