Sally Struthers’ deal drops DUI charge
ALFRED, Maine — Maine prosecutors have dropped a drunk-driving charge against actress Sally Struthers under an agreement in which she pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.
Struthers didn’t have to appear in court in Alfred last week when her plea was entered to a charge of driving to endanger. The Portland Press Herald reports she was ordered to pay $1,210 in fines and fees and her driver’s licence was suspended for a month.
The 66-year-old Struthers is best known for her role as Gloria Stivic in the 1970s TV sitcom All in the Family.
Police arrested her on Sept. 12, 2012, in the resort town of Ogunquit, where she was performing at the Ogunquit Playhouse in the musical 9 to 5.
Struthers’ attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message Thursday.
