A Perth grandfather maintains that he did nothing wrong despite allegedly speeding through a regional coronavirus checkpoint.

9News reports that the 83-year-old allegedly failed to stop for police and the army at the Morangup checkpoint north-east of Perth just after 3pm yesterday.

The grandfather maintains that he is innocent, and claims that he did stop.

After failing to stop, police followed the man for more than an hour and a half as he drove into Toodyay, eventually catching up with him in the townsite.

The man told 9News that police owed him money to replace the tyres after they employed road spikes to slow the car.
