Replace the hose bib. Sounds like the washer inside is frozen to the seat and the screw holding said washer is broken off.Depending where you live replace it with frostfree if youlive in cold climate

hehe could be anything I would trace the line that the hose bib is on back to the next valve and make sure that it is on before replacing anything. sometimes (me included) people shut the second valve off in winter incase of freezing (thus a flood).
