McGill v. State

In McGill v. State, 60 Ark. App. 246, 962 S.W.2d 382 (1998), the juvenile court had before it conflicting testimony about a juvenile's driving a car and fishtailing. The Court discussed the evidence as follows: "The witness's statement indicates that appellant fishtailed the car as he drove around a corner, so that he lost control of the car and struck a fence. By driving in this fashion, appellant consciously disregarded the risk that he could lose control of the car and have a wreck, resulting in the destruction of or damage to someone else's car. Thus, appellant's conscious disregard of the risk of a wreck would support a finding of delinquency for committing criminal mischief in the second degree."
