Your clutch probably burnt up. Same as my truck this summer. I had my clutch changed by a shop, but have also found my high pressure switch is possibly bad... so, ya... its fun...

If you go to a Dodge shop, they'll replace the compressor.. if you take it to a A/C shop, they can press the clutch into the compressor... less screwing around with worrying about contaminated lines. Probably less damage on your pocket book too.
