Lawyer says Toronto mayor 'considering' rehab

TORONTO (AP) - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's lawyer says the mayor is "considering" rehab, but says "it's best we hear from his lips."

Dennis Morris tells The Associated Press on Friday that Ford is "considering his options," including treatment.

Morris says Ford needs to say he what he plans to do himself, because "when you go left, he goes right."

Morris says Thursday was a defining day for the mayor of Canada's largest city. A new video surfaced showing the mayor in a rambling rage, threatening to "murder" someone.

The mayor said he was "extremely, extremely inebriated" in it and "embarrassed" by it.

Ford admitted in a stunning confession Tuesday that he smoked crack in a "drunken stupor" about a year ago. Police say they have a video of him smoking crack.
