possibly teal deer?

I live off-campus in the town I go to school in, and since I don't have a car, I ride my bicycle everywhere: to work, to class, to the store, etc. I have a heavy-duty bike lock for it that is coated in Kevlar to make it hard to cut through. I rode it to rehearsal last night and locked it to a bike rack and when I came out again to leave, the lock wouldn't accept my key. The key will fit in the lock almost all the way, but not enough to turn it to unlock it.
I thought maybe my key had gotten banged up or something in my pocket, so I got a ride home, grabbed my spare bike lock key, and got a ride back to try it out.
No luck. My lock somehow broke on me.
I went to DPS, the university police, to ask them if they could cut my bike free for me. Unfortunately, since I live off-campus, it never occured to me to register my bike with them, so they have no proof that I actually own the bike.

They need proof that it's actually mine before they'll set it free; unfortunately, I have no photos of myself on the bike whatsoever. I tried calling the shop where I bought it from originally to get a copy of the sale invoice (or whatever it's called) faxed to DPS, only to find out that the bike shop went out of business two years ago!!

WHAT DO I DO? All I have is my three housemates' word that the bike is mine. D:
Also,what the hell happened to my lock?
Can I pick it somehow??

I am so frustrated right now!
