Actress Sally Struthers gets charge dismissed

Continue reading below

On the eve of a trial, the drunken driving charge against actress Sally Struthers has been dismissed. Struthers, who’s best known for her role as Gloria on the 1970s sitcom “All in the Family,” was arrested Sept. 12, 2012, on Route 1 in Ogunquit, Maine. Struthers, 66, was there to perform in “9 to 5: The Musical” at the Ogunquit Playhouse, where she has appeared occasionally over the years. (She was back this summer in “Thoroughly Modern Millie.”) The Portland Press Herald reports that the drunken driving charge was dropped as part of an agreement in which Struthers pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of driving to endanger. The actress did not appear in court. Struthers, who lives in Los Angeles, was sentenced by Justice John O’Neil to pay $1,210 in fines and fees. Her driver’s license was also suspended for 30 days, effective on Sept. 3.
