    Have brake fluid leaking from rest driver side brake. Fluid visible on tire , wheel well and puddle on ground. Also brake is grinding on roter like it's locked or something. Any ideas?

    You'll have to clean up the area and determine exactly where the fluid is coming from. Hose, fitting, or caliper. I would not suggest driving it though, it sounds like it's leaking quite a bit and could be extremely hazardous.

    Is it Possible you wore the pads down so far the caliper over extended and started leaking from the piston?

    Do any off-roading lately?

    I'd take the wheel off and have a helper push the pedal.

    If there's that much fluid, you should be able to see it weeping.
