It sounds like the parking brake cable had jammed and possibly broke. I would lift the rear of the vehicle in the air and try rotating a tire. If it does not move at all the brakes are locked and need to replace emergency brake cable.

If your Subaru shifter gets stuck in PARK and won't release, don't worry... You can be driving the car again ...
wow both park and brake failures.
sounds like one is shorted to the other
and either park and brake are stuck.
ok take the the tests
key off, parks and headlights off,
look at all lamps on car inside and out, which are one.
is the dash lights glowing (called illumation lamps) on.
and side lights off, and front park lights off, ,yes, all off then park is off,
so of rear lights glow , is it just brakes, that means the brake lamp switch is stuck on.
Because of the inclination may be holding it stucked,u let the car from the hand brake and it stucked need to pull front/back to pop it.never let the hand brake before putting it out/in park mode.U may let it down if firmly holding the brakes ,yet put out of park before release the brakes.
HAVE SOMEONE GO BEHIND THE CAR AND CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE BRAKE LIGHTS ARE ON, IF THEY DON'T WORK THEN THERE IS NO POWER TO THE BRAKE PARK INTER-LOCK SOLENOID AND YOU CAN NOT DIS-ENGAGE PARK. IF THEY DON'T WORK CHECK THE FUSE, IF IT IS OK REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
