The electric motor sound you heard was the ABS system cycling the brakes hundreds of times per minute. I heard it once when attempting to stop on glare ice. (BTW, I came to a stop in the middle of a intersection. Not cool blowing through a Stop sign) --- Your ABS system failed. Pulling the fuse removed it's functions and probably lit the ABS dash light. You can get it checked out and obtain a replacement estimate. It's not going to be cheap.

There is no law to get it fixed. I hardy ever use mine and personally I wouldn't repair it.
