Brakes Locked

Ok my brakes are drum brakes and I am getting new lines for the back brakes so I have the lines off and I have the line that goes to the back brakes pinched off and I drove it through yard the other day and I just used the Emergency brakes and yesterday I moved it and I peeled out a little bit. So I parked it and later when I went to move it again I just kept on spinning and The front breaks are lcked up and I dont know why, how do I fix this.

Take off the MC cover, and stick a screwdriver between the pad and piston on the caliper. Gently pry back the piston, but it will also push fluid back up into the MC, so you may want to draw some fluid out before you even start. Then,PLEASE!!! put all the lines back on the car and get ALL the brakes working before you hurt yourself or someone else. Not safe at all driving with just front brakes, even in your yard.
