Sally Struthers of "All in the Family" has been arrested on suspicion of driving drunk, a charge denied by her rep.

The 65-year-old actress was pulled over around 12:20 a.m. ET on Thursday in Ogunquit, Maine, a coastal town which is about 40 miles south of Struthers' native Portland, OTRC.com has confirmed.

Struthers was taken to the Ogunquit police station and charged with misdemeanor OUI, or operating under the influence. According to the Associated Press, she was released on $160 bail.

Struthers is currently starring in a stage adaptation of the 1980 film, "9 to 5." She stars as Roz Keith, a character portrayed by Elizabeth Wilson in the original film. The Ogunquit Playhouse production will run through September 15.

Her spokesperson later issued a statement about the incident, saying: "Sally is working and she is fine and she loves The Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit. We deny these charges."

The actress, who is best for her role as Gloria Bunker-Stivic in the "All in the Family," also appeared in the spin-off series "Archie Bunker's Place" and "Gloria."

She also appeared in the series "Nine to Five," "TaleSpin," "Still Standing," "Gilmore Girls" and voiced the character of Charlene Sinclair in "Dinosaurs."

The actress is also known for her activism for ChildFund International. She has appeared in several commercials for the organization, which advocates on behalf of impoverished children in developing countries.

Struthers' court date was set for December.

UPDATE: Struthers' rep told OTRC.com in a statement, "Sally is working and she is fine and she loves The Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit. We deny these charges."
