Question JK Problem - Rt Front Shimmy

A friend posted this problem while she is en route from NC to NY) on a social media site (she really needs to join this one ):

Ok those in the know. About 400 miles ago I had my front and rear tires rotated and an alignment done. There was a shimmy in the right front and some uneven wear on that tire. These lights have come on my dash board my slick road sensory and abs system light. The roads are fine. I notice one me when having to decelerate somewhat quickly shake on the right front again... So now I presume I have a brake problem right front?? And that was the actual cause of the wear and shake or maybe it was in addition to??? Seeking Ideas. By the way the breaks are working fine on sleek or squeal.
I left her post (phone/text included) as it was, and included a picture she took.

I believe her Jeep is a 2012 JK; I am thinking something got disconnected or otherwise messed up after the alignment and the error lights are just a result of that, but not sure. Of course she has no code reader, but some people are saying it is a wheel bearing gone bad.

Ideas, please? I assume the lug nuts are tight, but wonder if the tire/alignment shop messed that up, too. Thanks in advance.
