Port Adelaide’s player leadership group, following consultation with the AFL and AFLPA, has sanctioned Jarman Impey $5,000 and banned him from playing in Round 1 of the premiership season following his involvement in a motor vehicle incident on Saturday evening.
The incident, where four cars were damaged on a Norwood street, led to his subsequent charging by South Australian Police.
Following consultation with the Motor Accident Commission, Impey will direct the $5,000 sanction to the Brain Injury SA in support of its road safety programs assisting people who have acquired brain injury as a result of road related trauma.
Impey will also be required to participate in Brain Injury SA's Youth Reconnect Transition Program, where he will witness first-hand the impact and life changing circumstances that result from road trauma.
Involvement of Aidyn Johnson
Port Adelaide can now confirm South Australian Police have been advised that player Aidyn Johnson was a passenger in Impey’s vehicle at the time the incident occurred.
As a result of this information, the leadership group, again following consultation with the AFL and the AFLPA, determined to apply the same internal sanction to Johnson.
Johnson will therefore not play football in Round 1, and will donate $5,000 to BINSA and also participate in the Youth Transition Program.
These sanctions are based on the information at hand and Port Adelaide will make no further comment as the matter is subject to an ongoing police investigation.
