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."

She was busted for an OUI? That means 'yes' in french. No one proofs this stuff apparently. I thought something more serious happened. Being arrested for a DUI is not scandalous. It happens to judges, teachers, lawyers...you name it. next!

I'm really sorry to hear this. Sally Struthers is a wonderful person who supported AIDS causes a long way back when most people ran away in fear. She has a heart of gold. Give her a break!

Calm down, already! She made a mistake, who hasn't? Let's not start grouping her with Amanda Bynes and Tara Reid!

Agree take a cab, and the rep can deny all he wants but I want to know did she take the breathe test or any other. Always laughed with her years ago but to many people are killed every year from this BS. Great job from the police officer who did take her off the road!!!!!
