'Bounty Hunter' Gets Shocking News

AOL.COM - People turn to crime for any number of reasons, and Duane "Dog" Chapman and his team of bounty hunters don't often get to hear their perps' backstories.

However, on Wednesday night's "Dog The Bounty Hunter" (Wed., 10 p.m. EST on A&E) Chapman was filled-in on one fugitive's own personal tragedy.

Chapman and the captured fugitive were sitting in the back of the vehicle, and the bounty hunter was in a reflective mood. He and Leland had caught their man without incident, and Chapman decided to give the forlorn-looking Jack the benefit of his advice.

Duane reminded the ex-con that he could be in a lot of trouble, and he didn't want him to keep taking drugs and stay on the downward spiral that would probably conclude with him spending the rest of his life in jail.

"Psychologically," he said, "I can see ... something has you beat down and you can't let it. The last thirty years of your life, you gotta make."

And that's when Jack dropped the bombshell: "I got cancer, though. So it's not good."

Duane immediately offered his condolences and Leland looked horrified. Then there was an awkward silence in the vehicle until Chapman asked how long he had to live. Having refused treatment, Jack said he didn't know. "Let the chips fall where they may."

"Dog The Bounty Hunter" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on A&E.
