Port Adelaide’s leadership group has fined Jarman Impey $5,000 and banned him from playing in Round 1 of the 2017 AFL season, following his involvement in a car accident on the weekend.

The 21-year-old crashed into three other cars, including teammate Angus Monfries’ vehicle, after a drinking session with teammates, before the fleeing the scene.

Impey has been reported with driving without due care, failing to exchange particulars and failing to report the incident and will be summoned to appear at the Adelaide Magistrates Court at a later date.

Youngster Aidyn Johnson, who was a passenger in Impey’s car at the time of the accident, has also been fined $5,000 and banned from playing football in Round 1.

  1. Week only 1 game for this incident. The club wants to be a strong social leader in our state should be 4 games to show the state that this type of thing is not right. And let the public know that it doesn’t matter if you’re a AFL person or not it’s unacceptable. As a power fan.

  2. A suitable punishment would be him volunteering 10 hours a week to help disabled people from car accidents. Wiping their butts my make him realise what damage he may have caused by his reckless behaviour.
