Unable to charge

Was returning from road trip 150 mi from RI to CT. Stopped at Supercharger. 2021 MY (2k mi) charging rate did not ascend normally so moved to adjacent charger. Also failed to charge, then started throwing errors.
Tesla alerts (chronological order): BMS_a167
Unable to charge Charge port door must be closed...
BMS_a063 Unable to charge Disconnect and retry
Note: could not disconnect Supercharger cable from chargeport. Rebooted many times.. Spoke to Tesla service. Ultimately used manual release lever After that, could no longer open chargeport door via screen. Opening door manually revealed red charging light. Took multiple attempts to get out of P (Park gear) into D. Limped to hotel and vehicle now towed. Anyone seen anything close to this behavior? Any suggestions? Now have wife and 2 kiddos in hotel 100 mi from home...no car. Ugh.
