Yea, the guy must have been a VIP or maybe CK.

I had the same thing happen on a Pacific Southwest flight from DCA a few years ago. A congressman got pissed after while we were sitting on the runway delayed -- waiting an hour or two for takeoff. He asked to return to the gate to be let off the plane, and was refused. Picked up his phone and made a call. Even though the ground stop was lifted and we were in line for takeoff, we ended up going back to the gate to let him off no less than 5 minutes after he made his call.
