Is it snowing if it is and this is a manual tranny try to leave it in gear one night and not ingage the e brake sounds like it is freezing up on you. snow can get in there and when you stop it freezes the brakes in place you could try and put some hot water on the rear brakes and see if it frees them up. hope this helps you

Right rear tire is locked up

If you are unable to fix yourself, than yes you can drive it to local shop. You still have front brakes working.
If you can repair yourself start by removing rear tire than brake drum and look for broken parts. Most likely they will fall out when you remove drum.
Replace worn or broken parts which are inexpensive for your car.
Check for leaking fluid from broken break lines and check fluid level under hood. Keep me informed N I'll help. Paul

Back brakes lock up

Have you jacked up the right rear tire to spin it? Have you used the emergency brake? The e-brake cable could be stuck on. It could be a bad wheel cylinder. or if it has rear disc brakes it could be a faulty caliper or a collapsed brake hose.
