Default A/C stalls engine

So a couple weeks ago I noticed that my A/C wasn't getting very cold and I thought that I would probably have to get it recharged soon. I never got around to it and the other day I decided to turn on my A/C and the car made a terrible squeaking noise and shut off. I drove it home with the A/C off and it ran perfectly fine. When I got home I tried to see if it would do it again. First I just turned on the fan with no A/C and the air blew out with no troubles. As soon as I switched the A/C on the engine stalled again. It seems like the compressor isn't turning and may be seized but I'm not entirely sure. What do you guys think?
