Update: No one on the corner has swagger like Arianna Huffington; blog empress bucks BlackBerry turn-off rule on flight

Who knew Arianna Huffington was so gangsta? Last month we told you about how the Web titan suavely cut to the front of the long line of journalists waiting to have their picture taken with President Obama at a White House holiday party. She bucked authority again this past weekend, reports the New York Post, when she refused to turn off her BlackBerry during a Dulles-to-LaGuardia flight. Law enforcement sources told the Post that an angry fellow passenger stood up to confront her as she chatted and texted in violation of the captain's order to shut down portable electronics. Both he and she were pulled aside for questioning when the plane landed, but neither was charged. In a statement to the tab, Huffington Post spokesman Mario Ruiz said: "There was a passenger who seemed upset. Arianna thought he didn't like the snacks. Guess not. Maybe he was an iPhone fan."
