I'm trying to play through "Blessed are the Meek?" in Chapter 2, but I keep running into the same problem. After a certain amount of time, Micah just stops moving, enemies stop shooting, and certain controls become non-responsive (can't switch weapons, heal, loot, etc). In addition, all dialogue stops, nothing story-wise progresses, and weird environmental things start popping up, like a floating rifle. On my first attempt, the winch didn't even remove the prison bars, it just fell to the ground with the bars intact and I was stuck. I've given it 10 or 11 attempts and the furthest I've gotten is just across the first bridge. I even said f-it at one point and tried killing off the sheriff directly, but by the time I walked in the glitch had already occurred so they all just stood there waiting to get shot. I also read somewhere that staying behind Micah might help, but no luck there either.
Another thing to note is that is also seems to be messing with my console's resources (playing on a standard XBOX One). When the glitch occurs, pausing the game just darkens the screen and no side menu appears, so I usually tap the Home button to get out. The longer I wait to tap Home, the more likely I have to have the resulting Home menu lock up as well, which seems odd. I even attempting to shut down my console using the controller had about a 20 second delay.
Any advice would be VERY much appreciated. This game is amazing but it sucks having to relive a time where I'm supposed to help Micah.
