Most likely you have a problem caused by rust or some other corrosion that made it lock. You will need to try prying on the wheel to unlock it or remove the tire and then try removing the brake drum or checking the break pads and disc. This depends on which you have, brake drum or disc. Sometimes it takes a little pounding on the brake drum to free it, just so you don't hit too hard so it dents or bends.
chock front wheels so car cant move jack up rear of car see if you can turn the wheel easley remoave tire .look onout side of drum on stud for hokding clips ,you can take them off with a screwdriver or just pry them off or turn them off back off adjuster tap lightely on drum and it should come off
Back up... on asphault and it will usually release... Usually this is caused by either a sticking ebrake cable, overly worn drums w/New shoes, and sometimes a bent spindle.. Dont keep applying the ebrake this will hinder the problem if any of the above are the issue. Once it frees up take it apart, if the cables stuck many times you can back off the cable adjustment and pry it back to release it, then replace it accordingly. If it isnt the cable, once its loosened up, back off adjuster wheel, remove drum and take it to your local parts store and have it sized, they will tell you if its out of spec, also look for wheel cylinder leakage and contamination.. Lastly if neither are the problem, then it probably has a bent spindle and gets jammed at certain brake application.. I have run into all three on NEONS
if its rear drum brakes, you probably have a sticking wheel cylinder. or a brake adjuster that's adjusted too tight. If its four wheel disc brakes it's probably the emergency brake cable/ tension mechanism not releasing.
Sounds like something is going on with the brakes especially if they are drum brakes,would remove wheel and check,if they are drum brakes check the adjustment,they could be too tight and when they start getting hot they expand and could have caused your problem
if rear e-brake locks up then get under car and pull on cable to rear wheels, this should un lock brakes, if the cable is not in a bad state and rusted. if to bad replace rear cables. if it comes loose then oil the cable good at the rear wheels. this may take care of problem.but you may have to take rear tire off to check on the condition of rear brakes also.
the brake shoes must be holding the drum from coming off. in the back of the drum on the backing platte, there should be a place to loosen brakes it is a open slot. use a brake tool or a wide screwdriver to loosen brakes, move tool up or down on star wheel to loosen the brakes.
