When reached for comment, Struthers' rep led with the good news in a statement to Us Weekly shared on Thursday: "Sally is working and she is fine and she loves The Ogunquit Playhouse and her yearly time in Ogunquit. We deny these charges."

After being released on the bargain-price bail amount of $160, the 65-year-old returned to her workplace in Ogunquit, performing in a production of 9 to 5 as Roz. It's a way to make a living, that's for sure!

We all need to take a step back, and let her speak. From personal experience, I've seen cops make a LOT of mistakes, including on DUI arrests. The only thing that floors me is this: $160.00? You've got to be kidding. I don't know about Maine, but in the Seattle area you're talking about hundreds of $ or doing time just for the arrest, and 10K or more when the process is done. We hear about it on our news all the time. DUI is not for the cheap at heart!
