Default Locking Steering column while Driving

I have a major problem with my 2002 touring that started yesterday. After a hard turnaround my steering column started clicking. On a mountainous road, I started notciing that at the 9, 12, and 3 position the wheel 'caught' on something and had to be jerked to continue the turn. The situation worsened after a few miles until every couples of inches of turning it feels as if the steering wheel is trying to lock itself.

Can anyone tell me the problem?

When others had the "clicking" sound it turned out to be the Clockspring, but I've never heard of anyone having the problem of the column locking up. Something of course could have broken in the lock cylinder or ignition switch.
