Was anything done prior to this occurring?
The brakes are locking due to pressure build up in system due to heat after driving.
Possibilities are bad master cylinder, improper adjustment of brake pedal to booster push rod clearance, bad felxibel hose, sticking caliper or sider bolts.

You need to test if it is only one or more wheels that is locking up.
