Default Parking brake noise?

Ever have the parking brake on the inside of the rear rotor make noise? This truck has disc brakes on the rear and the pads are at least 1/2 left but when I make a slight left turn in a parking lot while going slow I can hear metal on metal has a hollow sound just like bad drum brakes. The parking brake is in fact a drum brake so I am thinking maybe some hardware broke inside or something?

Another thing is when I apply the parking brake and then release it the pedal stays right where it was at, I have to manually pull it up? Anyone ever experience anything like this? I don't think it is an axle bearing that would be more of a grinding sound and this is more of a scraping sound.

Pretty shitty day so I don't think I will be pulling everything apart today...was just wondering if this kind of noise is ever caused by the parking brake or if this is a common problem?
