Mayor defends party pic with Charlie Sheen

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa strongly defended his decision to pose for a photograph with controversial actor Charlie Sheen saying he is in the “picture taking business” and that he had simply bumped into the actor while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

“I had a three minute conversation with him, I took a picture… I take a picture every single day, 50 times, and I took a picture with him. I have never said no to anyone who wanted to take a picture,” Villaraigosa said.

The comments were made during an exclusive interview on NBC4LA’s “News Conference” program Sunday.
