Former pop star Gary Glitter, who is a convicted pedophile, was arrested in London on Sunday in connection with the ongoing investigation into alleged sexual abuse by the late BBC television star Jimmy Savile. Glitter was allegedly arrested "on suspicion of sexual offenses." Savile, who died in 2011, became the subject of the vast investigation after 300 people recently came forward alleging Savile had assaulted them over his long career with the BBC.
