Alternator pulley froze up

Just last week my car died and I put a new battery in it, the next day I drove about 35 miles and my battery light came on so I checked my alt and it was no good. On the weekend my mechanic and I put in a new alt and anyone here with a zetech who has changed theirs knows its a real pain to do. The next monday I go to work with no problem and go about half way home and stopped at the store, got back in the car and drove about 100 yards and the car stalls so I thought it was just a hiccup so I tried to start it and it sqealed so I look under the hood and notice that there is belt rubber melted on the alt pulley and notice that the pulley is all the way against the alt which is why I guess it stopped turning.
Has anyone ever had this happen before?
