Is is possible that an air compressor can freeze up & prevent the car starting? on 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

The car wouldn't start and I'm being told the air compressor is frozen and won't allow the car to turn over because it's on the same belt as many other components. Is this possible? Thanks,
