What you have is a safety switch, wich is why when the car is running you need to step on the brake to release the shifter from park. the switch is electric, and therefore isn't working because your battery is dead. Now, for the good news. Next to your shifter there should be a little plug, or a slot about the size of your door lock key hole. Insert your key into the slot, press down lightly, and then you can take the car out of park. That is called your "shift lock release"

SOURCE: Neutral with a dead battery
There is an override lever on the shift lever, inside the center console. Find the access panel next to the driver's seat; it's about 1.5" high by 4.25" wide, under the top edge accent trim. Carefully pry out the panel, then use a screwdriver to push the white plastic override up toward the roof of the vehicle. You can then move the shift lever out of Park.

Sounds like you either broke your inhibitor switch, or possibly damaged your parking pawl in the transmission.
Return to the dealership.
