EXCLUSIVE

Sally Struthers Mug ShotSally Struthers was arrested for drunk driving in Maine yesterday ... TMZ has learned.

We've learned ... 65-year-old Struthers was busted at 12:30 AM for OUI -- operating under the influence.

Struthers -- who starred in "All In the Family" before becoming a spokesperson for ChildFund International -- was released shortly after she was taken into custody after posting $160 bail ... which is just one dollar a day for the past 160 days.

Sally was handcuffed at the scene and law enforcement tells TMZ ... she was cooperative.

We're told drugs were NOT involved.

Struthers has been in Maine starring in the play "9 to 5."

The punishment for a first offender is a $500 fine and a 90-day license suspension.  There is no risk of jail time.

Struthers' arraignment is set for December 14.

2:44 PM PT -- A rep for Struthers released a statement saying, "Sally is working and she is fine and she loves The Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit. We deny these charges."

Sally-Sally- Sally~ The idea of actors reviving their careers with an arrest works, AS LONG AS YOU HAVE TALENT~ Nick Nolte= Talented or even Lindsey Lohan= Talented- see what I mean- so, since you have no real talent, except to tease hungry kids by eating a PB&J just before taping their hungry little selves, you may have to do what other untalented people have done- like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian and leak a sex tape- oooohhhh - ummmm never mind!

I don't know if it is that these former celebs have too much time on their hands once their careers fizzle, or if they are depressed, but it does seem like once their career is about over, they start drinking.

Who of us haven't driven after drinking a little too much? Be honest, God is watching & listening. Knowing when to "stay put," or give the car keys to someone else, is the best thing. BUT...do we always do the best thing?

There are not enough details in this article to confirm if she was even driving. All it can take is to be sitting in your car waiting for a ride with your keys in view of the arresting officer. Whether or not your key is in the ignition is at the arresting officer's discretion. In Colorado, at least, this is common.

Where's the test score? It's possible that she could have been just slightly over the limit. That doesn't make it right to drive after drinking alcohol, but some can handle driving at a near legal limit.

"The punishment for a first offender is a $500 fine and a 90-day license suspension. There is no risk of jail time." THAT'S IT?! I live in Fairfax County, VA and it's mandatory 1 yr. suspended license and 5 days in Jail.

What the heck does one dollar a day for 160... days have to do with it? She paid the bail, she got out.
