something strange happened

My VN is my daily ride, except every other weekend when I have my kids. Well I didn't ride her from 6pm Friday until a few minutes ago when I ran to the store, the steering stays locked and the key is with me, my security cameras record 24/7 and no one has touched her, but the steering seems turned to the right about an inch now for some reason, would this have to be bent or is there an adjustment?

The tree could have loose bolts. I'd try to straiten it out like an bicycle front tire (holding tire with legs) and tighten it down to manual's torque specs.
