Front brake locked for no reason

To figure it out is pretty simple. Open the bleeder on the caliper, normally only a dribble at best will come out. If it's hydraulically locked fluid will come out under pressure and the wheel will free up.
If nothing changes then it's mechanically locked, a pad could be stuck in the caliper applying pressure as if the brakes are aplied or the pad could be stuck to the rotor itself.

Total speculation of course, if that's true then you should be able to see a print on the rotor.
