The 'All In The Family' star will appear in court this September for Maine DUI.
Actress Sally Struthers will appear in court on 23rd September, having been charged with driving under the influence after being routinely stopped by police in the southern Maine town of Ogunquit in 2012. She was pulled over and found to be driving over the legal limit of blood alcohol which resulted in a DUI charge.
The 65-year-old actress was charged with criminal operating under the influence and posted $160 bail, according to The Daily Mail. If convicted, the performer will face a maximum of $500 fine as well as a 90 day licence suspension. She won't have to worry about being locked up in jail though - Maine state law does not impose jail terms for first time DUI offences.

The film finds us in rural Pennsylvania, where angsty twentysomething Cole Malby (Tyler Christopher) and his quiet brother Patrick (Jason Widener) butcher meat and fix electronics in order to pay for a life filled with beer drinking and hell raising.

"Baadassss!" is Mario Van Peebles' fond commemoration of his cantankerous father's bull-headed cinematic audacity. An unblinking, if slightly golden-toned, account of the making of Melvin Van Peebles' violent, dark, gritty and groundbreaking "Sweet Sweetback's Baadassss Song," it's a clear labor of love, and so much the better for it.
"Sweetback" -- a "ghetto Western" about a slick, taciturn pimp who becomes a hunted man for killing a couple thug cops who beat a black militant -- scared the hell out of Hollywood, yet its success ($15 million in limited release in 1971) gave rise to scores of shallower imitators that became the blaxploitation genre of "Coffy" and "Shaft."
Getting the divisive, patently anti-establishment film made was a nightmare of financing and bounced checks ("Baadasssss!" implies that drug money was to be used before Bill Cosby stepped in), of casting (writer-director Melvin played the lead when he couldn't find the right actor), of union problems (the industry guilds were practically all-white at the time -- and expensive), of controversy (an X rating), and of distribution (only two privately-owned theaters would touch it at first).
