Smoking A/C Compressor

I noticed a burning smell while pulling out of the driveway, I opened the hood and smoke was coming from the middle of the A/C Compressor. Is the truck still driveable to get to a service location? Should I assume the A/C Compressor needs to be replaced, the system evacuated, and or the clutches need to be replaced. This situation is new to me, I have no idea.

The a/c was not on, the motor was turned off before I could see anything. The smoke was coming from the middle of the pulley.

Pulley might be shot then. Have you tried spinning it?
