Try putting a little pressur on your gear selector. Push it forwards (Towards park) and remove the key at the same time.

If this works, then you have a bent linkage/bad bushing in the gear selector mechanism.

If it doesn't work, then you possibly have something binding inside the ignition lock that is preventing it from turning completely to the "Off" position.
