Legendary English rocker, Gary Glitter, has been arrested by police investigating child sex abuse allegations against late BBC television host, Jimmy Savile, on Sunday.
The arrest brings new speculation that Savile, a popular children's television host and disc jockey, was at the center of a pedophile ring. The arrest has also raised questions about whether or not the BBC had ignored child sex abuse allegations against Savile for decades.
"Its executives have apologized and vowed to uncover the true scale of the alleged abuse," the Associated Press said.
The 68-year-old Glitter has already had run-ins with the law. In 1999, Glitter was jailed in Britain for child pornography possession and in 2006, he was convicted in Vietnam for "committing obscene acts with children". He was later deported back to Britain in 2008.
"Glitter is the first person arrested in connection with the Savile abuse inquiry," said the BBC.
