From your description, it sounds like the shift control cable is binding or broken. The shift lever inside the transmission may also be damaged.
Its kinda simple for a quick fix I have the same issue right now. First u must pop the center piece that surrounds the gear shift, as well as the bracket that surrounds it. Then u will c a pink thing towards the front under the gear mount. Put ur finger down there and push back as u have ur foot on the brake n shift out of park.that was the quick answer u can go to YouTube n search stuck in park for a video of how to repair it n u can Google stuck in park for a better detail version of my answer but it works.
