An LAPD helicopter made an emergency landing today on San Vicente Blvd near the library in West Hollywood.

The chopper opted to touch down in the untraditional spot when a warning light went on, signaling "an oil pressure problem in the engine, and possible loss of engine power," reports

No one was injured, and the helicopter will now be inspected to see what caused the light to go off.
