Lindsay Lohan returns to rehab

Los Angeles: It`s probably not the comeback she would have preferred, but troubled actress Lindsay Lohan checked back into a rehab centre after taking drugs in violation of her probation.

Lohan checked into an unidentified rehab centre in southern California, according to celebrity website TMZ.com.

Lohan`s stint comes ahead of an Oct 22 hearing that could see her jailed for a year for violating terms of a probation that banned her from using drugs and alcohol.

After failing a drug test earlier this month, she spent 15 hours in jail Friday before being freed on $300,000 bail, after an appeals judge overruled a lower judge`s decision that she must spend 30 days in jail. Lohan was released from a court-ordered rehab stint last month, following a brief jail term imposed for drunk-driving violations.

Lohan announced last week on her Twitter account that she had tested positive in a drug test.
