Operation Yewtree is currently investigating allegations of multiple sexual offences by broadcaster Jimmy Savile, who died last year.
Allegations have been made that Glitter attacked an underage girl in Savile's dressing room at the BBC while the Top of the Pops presenter was present.
Glitter was questioned for nine hours at Charing Cross police station, and has now been bailed until mid-December pending further inquiries. He was the first person arrested as part of Operation Yewtree.
The Metropolitan Police had earlier confirmed that a man in his 60s "was arrested at approximately 07.15 on suspicion of sexual offences.
"The individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'Savile and others'."
Police have confirmed that Operation Yewtree is now looking into over 400 lines of inquiry, and the claims of over 300 possible victims.
