Cannot Close or Lock Interior Door

I'm unable to Close or Lock Interior Door as the Deadbolt got Pushed Inside, not sure how it went it. Couple of snaps here...

Please advice how i can pull the bolt Out so i can Close the door or let me know other options to do. Thanks in advance.

Usually loosening the screws that hold the inside escutcheon will free whatever is binding. Make sure everything is operating smoothly as you re-tighten the screws.

That's not a dead bolt, it's the tongue. A dead bolt has a key on both sides & the bolt is much stronger.
