IT most likely looks like muscular spasm. However, the complaint of locking is of concern. This needs to be evaluate and for this X-rays and MRI may be helpful.

Locking of knee indicates some mechanical block. It can be due to damaged tissue. Muscular spasm is a protective response. You need to have examination of your knee. MRI can be useful in more than 95% of the cases. Please feel free to contact.
