Dwayne Russell has panned Port Adelaide for its "soft" one-match suspension of backman Jarman Impey.

Impey was in hot water for a driving offence last week, in which police allege he hit four parked cars before fleeing the scene.

On Tuesday, Port hit Impey with a $5,000 fine and suspended him for Round 1.

But Dwayne said the club was too soft on him.

"If a 21-year-old of any background doesn't know that leaving the scene of an accident is wrong, then Port Adelaide's own education system is flawed," he said on Sports Today.

"This is not just an embarrassing three days for Jarman Impey, it's now an embarrassment for Port Adelaide overall."
