Let it run and the exhaust pressure should blow it out.

If not you will have to take the tail pipe off and drain it that way.

Could be a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. Make sure that the coolant is actually coming out of the exhaust and not leaking from somewhere.

You could have a head gasket issue, does the smoke smell sweet?

I assume the anti freeze coming out is coming out as smoke. Agree with Bob as far as a head gasket or crack somewhere. Anti freeze, in my limited understanding, can only get out of the engine either by a visible leak or drip, or out your tailpipe. If it's out the tailpipe, then it's coming out of the cylinder.
