Q: Alero wont start or turn over, gauges go crazy and max out after key is removed on 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I drove my car all night(multiple shut off and start ups), stopped to let a friend out and when I went to start it up it wouldn't even wind over at all, the cd player makes a weird clicking sound and ejected the cd, the gauges spun all around and maxed out even after I turned the key off and took it out. Tried to put the windows up and the trunk popped open. It is seriously like my car is possessed!! Has anyone had any similar issues? Please any help at all would be appreciated!

Oh, and its a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4 L V6 about 85 000 miles on it.. have been driving it for over a year and no major issues at all. Worked fine all night up until I tried to leave. Went back and tested the battery and it has a lot of charge left.
