Reverend Marvin Winans — the guy who MC’d Whitney Houston’s funeral service — should NOT have been driving when he was carjacked last week … because his license was suspended. In fact, Winans is a wanted man — with an active warrant out for his arrest, this according to DetroitNews.com. Marvin — whose family members are gospel music legends — reportedly lost his driving privileges on May 9th after failing to pay 2 tickets issued back in December … one for impeding traffic and the other from a previous driving on a suspended license incident.

After missing his court date, a judge issued a warrant for Marvin’s arrest on March 15 — one day before Winans was carjacked at a Detroit gas station. As we previously reported, Winans claims he was approached by 4 men … who roughed him up and jacked his Infinity SUV. Winans’ rep released a statement saying, “The issue is being addressed … A lot of that is handled by his administrative team, not by him.”Fun Fact — according to DetroitNews.com, Winans has been ticketed 11 times since 2009.
