    Answered . Be honest and deal with it head on. Hopefully
    It was your only incident and your employer should not think it is that big of a deal.

    Answered . Seems like this question is extremely specific. They want to know everything. If you were held responsible. If you lie and they do a background check, it will be disastrous.

    I'd answer as truthfully as possible which would be admitting the disposition.
