Scrushy Jury Can't Decide - Will it be a Mistrial?

CNN and  AP Birmingham Alabama News report the latest jury note to the judge:

"We regret to inform the court that after many days of deliberating we were unable to reach a verdict of either guilty or not guilty of any/all counts."

What can the judge do-

1. Call it a mistrial.

2. Send the jury back to deliberate more.

3. Give them an Allen charge. (see here for explanation)

Stay tuned.
