(Newser) – A bizarre story emerges from the Jackson family home: Some of the grandkids got their hands on at least one stun gun and tried to use it on Michael's youngest son, Blanket. It's not clear whether it was horse play or whether Blanket was injured, but the incident prompted a visit from California social services to Katherine Jackson's Encino home to interview her and the kids and to confiscate the stun gun, reports TMZ.

The gossip site says Jermaine's 13-year-old son, Jaafar, ordered a stun gun online a few weeks ago. A security guard at the home investigating a noise on the second floor "stopped Jermaine's kids from stunning Blanket," a source says. The guard then took the gun and gave it to Katherine, but TMZ says the kids have a second one still on the property. Social services, meanwhile, is planning a follow-up visit.
