The commercial pilot and two passengers had completed a local flight.  After a routine touchdown and landing roll, the pilot applied the brakes to initiate a right turn onto a taxiway.  The pilot reported that the right brake “grabbed immediately,” causing the airplane to ground loop.  A postaccident examination and disassembly of the brake system revealed no mechanical anomalies that would have precluded normal operation. The reason for the reported brake malfunction could not be determined.

Probable Cause: The pilot's loss of directional control after landing for reasons that could not be determined because an examination of the airplane did not reveal any anomalies that would have precluded normal operation.
