Spare Tire Lug and Lug Nut Spinning

I went to take off the spare tire today and one of the Lugs is spinning. When you turn the lug nut, the stud is spinning as well. I can get a finger behind the mount and feel it spinning. Is there a way to get this off???

Letting the air out of your spare tire can help with some tire & wheel combinations by loosening the wheel against the spare tire mount. It's worth a try at this point.
When you have a choice, buy American.
