How could you tell it was stuck? The manual switch on the hub or something else?

Easy way to tell is jack it up and turn the wheel, while watching the driveshaft. I wouldn't drive it if there is doubt, things will break.

The only thing it will hurt is milage and maby a little more ujoint and differential wear, if left for a long time.
