French Montana's Super Bowl weekend was almost ruined when he was taken into custody Saturday night after a party he attended in Brooklyn. French was not the only one arrested at the time, as fellow rappers Jadakiss, Chinx Drugs, Smoke DZA, and Buckwild were reportedly taken in at the same time.

We never got the full story on why the bust went down, though it seemed like it couldn't have been THAT big a deal as French took his cuffing with a smug grin, and was released in time to catch the game the next day.

A TMZ reporter caught up with the Coke Boy on the street today, and he was still all smiles, revealing that the arrest was spurred by a 2008 warrant out for him, which he earned for driving without a license. 

This doesn't explain why the rest of his crew were thrown in the pen, but for now we'll have to take Montana's word for it.

Watch the interview below.
