Yes happened to me 2 days ago. Break the lugnuts loose but leave them on and drive around in figure eights. Try a half an 8 then check then a whole eight then check.

Same thing happened to my buddy last winter, he slammed into the side of a curb slidiing on ice... Stopped at my house to change it in my heated garage... Had to beat on the tire for about 20 minutes, finally popped loose using a chunk of 4x4.. It was crazy..

Used to have this problem with my F150, especially when it got cold, put a little anti-seize compound on where the wheel and the hub and rotor come together and came of much easier next time I rotated them.
