Glitter Arrested In Porn Probe

November 19 [14:00 EDT] -- Seventies glam star Gary Glitter is under investigation after child pornography was found on a computer he took into a shop to get repaired.

England's Press Association reports that Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was arrested at a store in Bristol, England. Search warrants were executed and material seized at two addresses. He was released without charges being filed, but the incident has touched off an investigation.

Glitter first hit the charts in 1972 with "Rock and Roll Part II," which still has sports fans around the world standing, clapping and singing along to the memorable (and only) lyric, "hey."

In spite of some drug problems and a high-living style that led to a bankruptcy, Glitter has remained active in the business, outlandish garb intact. He tours annually every December and this year is about to embark on a special 25th Anniversary road trip around England which will coincide with a greatest hits double CD release.

His music was prominently featured on the soundtrack to the popular movie, "The Full Monty," and will be seen playing himself in the coming Spice Girls movie. He also has a role in a comedy called "ILoveYouLoveMeLove," due out next year.

Glitter's spokeman confirmed the arrest to the PA News in England but emphasized that the rock star has not been charged.
