Brakes locked up?! PLEASE HELP ASAP!

Okay... so like worse scenario everr!! lmao

My cars currently in the paint booth at the paint shop. They drove the car in, and painted it. Everything was fine. They went to drive the car out of the paint booth and its like the wheels are locked up. (At least the left side are locked up and wont rotate.) Car won't budge in D or R but Revs fine. When you hit the gas, the car kinda lunges at diagonal angle without moving like one of the rear brakes in locked up.

Any thoughts??! lmao I need my car out of the booth because it looks soo sexy now and my car is hogging 1 of the 2 paint booths and slowing there business down.

I'm running Rotora BBK.

Teaser shot as well....

I'm surprised a shop can't handle that. Could be a frozen e-brake, otherwise you may have to pull a wheel off and see what's up. Hitting the rotor with a big hammer might free things up...not necessarily advisable, but in a pinch, you know.

If there weren't those grates underneath, I'd say stick a floor jack under the rear and pull it away with the rear wheels off the ground.

Thanks man for the response! Turns out, the heat caused an air pocket in the brake lines.... causing my brake pads to grip tight around the rotors. They flushed the brake lines some and got it back up and rolling again! Should have my car either later tomorrow or early Monday.
