Cruise control did not disengage

Driving along this afternoon on the hwy with the cruise control set at 55 and see the light change up ahead. I "Think" I just hit the break and noticed that the truck was not slowing down. More brake was applied slowing the truck although i was needing to give it alot more than normal. I noticed the engine rpms were staying up and i again Think i pushes off on the cruise control but to no use.
long story short I brought it too a stop at the red light. and the rpms were up at around 2000. truck was trying to pull but i kept the break on and continued to hit off with no luck.

As soon as the light turned green I let off the break and the truck started forward before the rpm's dropped down. I was able to accelerate and use cruise control again normally several more times on the way home...

Any ideas whats up or what I need to be checking?

BTW this is a 2001 f250 4x4 PSD 120k on the ticker.and an auto tranny

nope has not done it again. Just occurred this afternoon course I have only had the rig for 4 days lol. Idaho does not have a lemon law either. I am looking into the vin to see if it was covered under the cruise control recall. and then I am going to walk out and check the mat.

I cursory search of here plus a good long time lurking on here before i bought says this is not a common problem.

Make sure your brake lights are working. They need to be working to trip the switch to "interupt" the cruise control. I'd also check to make sure the off switch is working on the cruise also. Do this truck, by chance, have alot of aftermarket add-ons?

no mods on the truck and brake lights work fine. beyond that it has not happened again so maybe it was a fluke....
