I had the same problem last week, the battery didnt have enough power to spin the engine fast enough to start the car. Fitted a new battery and now its fine. The old battery did recharge with a trickle charger but it must have lost cranking power.

PS you may have blown the 150amp fuse in the cable going to the starter while trying to start it with a low battery.
