SOURCE: seized handbrake
you'll have to jack the car up and take the wheel off, then take the assembly apart and push the pistons in the calipers back in then put it all back together and pump the brakes until they go either hard or you'll need to bleed them again to release any air from the system

Whenever you change pads, you must always pump the pedal several times to get the calipers to take up any excess space between the pad and rotor. You'll fill it in the pedal as they pump up.

Turn thr "Star wheel" between the brake pads with a screwdriver. Count the number of notches. Once you have the brakes freed up, reassemble and adjust using the same number of nutches in the opposite direction. You most likely have a cable stuck in locked position. If possible, DRY LUBE it. If not, Install a new cable or sleeve.

SOURCE: brakes seizing up
You may have contaminated brake fluid. The fluid gets too hot, caused the fluid to expand and lock up your brakes. once it cools it will allow you to move. Flush the brake system, start at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder and bleed the system until all the old dirty fluid is out. Just allow it to gravity bleed, don't waste your time doing the pump and release method. It only gives your buddy a sore foot and if you miscue you **** air back into the line.
Let me know if I can help you with any more info or guidance.
