Default 2000 Buick lesabre 3.8 V6 problem

My friend has a 2000 Buick lesabre. My friend and I were racing (I have a 2006 Impala LT) so after I beat him in the race we got out to talk to each other. When he turned his car back on it made this weird noise. Please watch and tell me what you think. So he got the car back home and I told not to drive it until tomorrow for school thinking it might be over heating or a belt because of the squealing. Well instead after I left he drove somewhere and on his way home his car stalled and the steering locked up so he couldn't steer it all. Luckily he was right outside his driveway. Anyways I did some research and I'm thinking its the serpentine belt but I would like someone else's opinion who has more knowledge of this than me. Thank you
