Ive never had this happen before, especially with a reamer as big as this one - but I actually bent the shaft when the reamer caught in the work, and my drill motor swung around. I stopped it with my arm, and I am not that strong - but it bent it like a banana about 15 degrees. I can only think that it wasnt properly heat treated.
