glove compartment won't open on 1999 Cadillac DeVille

Opened my glove compartment yesterday, closed it as usual and now it won't open. It is not locked, but the handle will not move. Has this ever happened to anyone?

It would not be unusual if the clove box handle/latch on your 1999 Cadillac Deville has broken. If that is the case in can be replaced, your old glove box lock cylinder will need to be transferred to the new latch assembly. The new part may come in black only and require painting if necessary.
How do I get it open? I is closed and I can't access the mechanism.
