my guess would be your compressor and/or the clutch has seized

had the same happen to me a while back - it happened at night and the compressor clutch was glowing a very red shade of red

new compressor / new filter dryer, expansion valve & flush needed + regas

Yep..... Definatly compressor seized.
A good way to check is to pull your serpentine belt off and try spin the centre part of your compressor, the clutch part not the pulley. I did this with the refrigerant lines disconnected and didn't budge. So I knew it was the compressor.
