A nationwide manhunt ended on Monday for a man the FBI described as "armed and dangerous". Police have arrested 42-year-old Ryan Kelly Chamberlain, after federal authorities had found explosive materials in his apartment this past weekend. The FBI took him into custody in San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge area. Morgan Manos filmed the take-down with his iPhone: "They got him onto the ground, they were trying to get him cuffed. They were yelling at him to get one of his arms around behind his back. He was complaining that he couldn't, that he he was like hurt or stiff or something. Apparently they finally got it around and got him cuffed... so he looked basically right at me as I was filming him and yelled 'help'." The San Francisco Chronicle reported that he sent out a timed suicide note via social media earlier that day. In it, he wrote about his depression, romantic heartbreak and the loss of his job. Political consultant Alex Clemens, knows Chamberlain and briefly employed him. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ALEX CLEMENS, SAYING: "It appears in its title, which is "goodbye" and a lot of the language in it -- if you're reading this it means I wasn't there to stop it -- to be a suicide note." Chamberlain was a public relations contractor for several local tech and marketing companies, according to his online resume.
