Should Lindsay Lohan return to rehab again? Or, do you think she deserves to go to jail for allegedly lying about not being behind the wheel during the June car crash?

HLN host, Jane Velez-Mitchell, weighed in on Lindsay’s latest troubles, telling Celebuzz: “There is a saying in sobriety, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

“Lindsay has already been to rehab five times and some would claim, even though she says she’s sober, that it’s not working very well,” she added.

“I think to send her to rehab again might be more of the same.”

The ‘Liz & Dick’ actress faces criminal charges on both coasts. On Nov. 29, Lohan was formally charged in California with three misdemeanors after allegedly lying to police about whether she was behind the wheel at the time of a June car crash.

On the same day, Lohan was involved in a fight outside of Avenue nightclub in New York City resulting in her being arrested and charged with third degree assault.

Said the HLN host: “This is a woman who has been before at least four judges, twenty court appearances, or something like that, yet despite all of the drama-rama, she’s done less than two weeks behind bars. We’re talking about DUI, cocaine, necklace theft, and there’s the high speed chase too. If anybody else had done all of that, they might be behind bars much longer than two weeks.”

“What I think she needs some kind of lockdown, whether it’s jail or rehab, I don’t know. But, it can’t be one of these fabulous rehabs that are like a hotel. If, in fact, she has violated her probation, I think she finally needs to do some hard time. And, I think as a complement to that hard time, do 12 step meetings.”
