I am sorry your having this problem

with it just being one front wheel doing this and not both front wheels locking up the issue will be specific to that wheel of the caliper itself or the rubber brake hose bad at that wheel or the caliper slides or the pads binding in the caliper pad holders

the best action to get is to get that wheel to lock up and then with it locked up open the steel line into the rubber flex line for that wheel and see if it will release the odds are it will not then loosen the rubber flex hose where it connects into the caliper if it releases the hose is bad if it still will not release then it is the caliper or the caliper slides sticking
