Sometimes celebrity drunk-driving arrests take an unexpected turn—providing fresh evidence that substance abuse is no respecter of reputations. This time it's squeaky-clean '70s actress Sally Struthers, best known for her Emmy-winning role as Gloria Stivic on All in the Family—and more recently as Babette on Gilmore Girls and as a face of Save the Children. She was pulled over and arrested for OUI—operating under the influence—early yesterday morning in the coastal town of Ogunquit, Maine, where she's appearing in an annual run at the Ogunquit Playhouse, as Roz in the musical 9 to 5. The 65-year-old actress was released on $160 cash bail and is due back in court in December—she looks set to make a fight of it. "Sally is working and she is fine and she loves the Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit," says a spokeswoman. "We deny these charges." The drama will wrap up soon: Struthers' stint in the show is scheduled to end tomorrow.
