Operation Yewtree is the UK-based pedo hunting squad that began after hundreds of allegations surfaced about Jimmy Savile.
To start the new year, Yewtree arrested two new gentlemen, one of whom is Jim Davidson, who is apparently a comedian.

One interesting tidbit:
"In 2007, Davidson was called on as a character witness to drug trafficker Brian Brendan Wright. Despite Davidson's testifying to Wright's character, the judge concluded that Wright was in fact "a master criminal, manipulative, influential and powerful," and sentenced him to 30 years in prison."
According to the BBC, Davidson and Wright owned a racehorse together.
