Sally Struthers has spoken out to defend herself after being arrested on drunk driving charges Wednesday.

Struthers, 65, was arrested in Maine on Sept. 12 for drunk driving. She was charged with "OUI," operating under the influence.

The "All In The Family" actress has denied the drunk driving charges against her. "Sally is working and she is fine and she loves The Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit. We deny these charges," Struthers' rep told Us Weekly in a statement.

Struthers was pulled over at 12:20 a.m. on Sept. 12 on Route 1 in Ogunquit, Maine, located about 40 miles south of Portland, police told People magazine. She is in the town to perform the role of Roz in a playhouse production of "9 to 5" at a local theater through Sept. 15.

Struthers was arrested, had her mugshot taken and charge with OUI, a misdemeanor. She was released on $160 cash bail, People reported.

The "OUI" charge is used in just a few states, including Maine, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. "Operating under the influence" makes it illegal to "operate or be in actual physical control" of a motor vehicle." Thus, a person can be sitting in the driver's seat on the side of the road with the engine running and the car in park and still be charged.

Struthers is most recognized for the role of Gloria Stivic from “All in the Family," which aired on CBS from 1971 to 1979. Gloria was Archie Bunker’s daughter. The actress won two Emmys for the role.

Struthers is also known for her work with the Christian Children’s Fund (or ChildFund). She is a spokeswoman for the charity, which works on behalf of impoverished children in developing countries, predominantly in Africa.

Struthers is due back in court in December.
