Probably the ABS activating as you were locking up the tires. Was it a loud noise that also made the pedal feel spongy for a second?

Yup..thats ABS. Next time you are out driving when its safe slam the brakes hard to try and lock the tires and see if its the same sound. Its perfectly normal for it to do that when ABS kicks in.
