Jep Robertson Suffers Seizure

Robertson, 36, revealed on Twitter this weekend that he had a near-death experience while out hunting the previous Sunday. He also posted a humorous picture comparing himself to Steven Segal.

"Well, I about died this past Sunday…I'm doing much better now," Jep tweeted on Saturday. "Thanks for all the prayers! #seizuresuck #gladtobealive."

The Robertson family, led by Phil Robertson, released a statement to offer further details on the incident. "Earlier this week while deer hunting, Jep suffered from a seizure," the Duck Dynasty family told E! News. "Thankfully, he was in the stand with friends, and [brother] Willie was at the hunting camp when it occurred so he was by his side in a matter of minutes."

"He is doing well now, but is still in the hospital for additional tests and observation and he is being treated with antibiotics to cover a range of possible infections believed to have caused the seizure," the family continued. "Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support and ask that you keep Jep, Jessica and their children in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."

Season 7 of Duck Dynasty will premiere on A&E Nov. 19.
