Police say a military helicopter had to make an unexpected landing at a high school in Arlington due to mechanical problems.

According to Arlington County police, the helicopter landed on the football field at Yorktown High School Friday night and their officers have responded to the school for crowd control.

The pilot told FOX 5's Anjali Hemphill that the helicopter had a transmission issue and a warning light went off forcing him to make the emergency landing.

No injuries have been reported.

A maintenance crew has been sent to the school by vehicle to repair the military helicopter, police say.
