An evening meeting at City Hall turned into an elevator-escape mission for Detective Chad Davis and traffic Officer Erik Martin of the Bothell Police Department Thursday.
After the meeting, they got into an elevator, which got stuck between the first and second floor for over an hour, Bothell police Sgt. Bryan Keller said.
