MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - "No trespassing" signs are now posted in Memphis councilwoman Janis Fullilove's front yard and on her front porch.  So far, she's not talking about her latest behavior behind the wheel.

It happened during a meals on wheels event last week at MIFA.  Our camera caught the councilwoman pulling out of the parking lot in her green Nissan Altima.  She was driving while her driver's license is revoked.

"We did feel it was appropriate to ask the highway patrol to investigate the matter," Shelby County District Attorney spokesperson Jennifer Donnals said.

"The DA's office is not an investigative agency, so we rely on law enforcement to gather evidence, information, and talk to witnesses for any possible crime," Donnals said.  "And that's what is going to happen in this case."

Fullilove's license was revoked following a series of incidents over the last year, including more than one DUI-related arrest.  Action News Five was first to uncover an application on which she claimed her license was "lost."  It had been confiscated by deputies in DeSoto County.  A grand jury could soon investigate that matter.

"We're prohibited from confirming when a case may or may not be presented to a grand jury until it is presented," Donnals said.

The two cases could be combined if Fullilove is charged for driving without a license.     

The THP admits, the fact that she wasn't caught by an officer does complicate things.

    The man in red likes to take things - a mower and weed eater from one home, change and a cell phone from someone's unlocked truck, even a little red wagon, and a 2-year-old's lunch box. Neighbors said the thief wears all red and a home surveillance camera caught him as he peered into 2-year-old Willia's backyard where she stored her little red wagon.
