You can check-in any file  that being checked  out by any user if and only if you
are a site adminstrator. Please note that you are going to loose any changed had
made by the user.

I am site administrator but the file  was still locked.
I did not say "check in and don't save any changes"
the user had to actually login and close  the spreadsheet so it could be accessed
by others.

You need to be a 'site collection administrator' not just site administrator to
unlock the file  locked by other users....
