Ted Jarosak Jr. was the first witness Monday afternoon in his 1999 slander lawsuit against television commentator Gordon Bloyer.
Jarosak, 57, is suing Bloyer due to alleged statements made by Bloyer in April 1998 and June 1999.
Jarosak retired in 1999 after 28 years on the Portage Police Department.That also was his last year of 12 years on the Portage City Council, eight as president.
Under questioning from his attorney, Janice Gambill of Portage, Jarosak told the jury of four men and two women he never pointed a gun at the head of any of his three ex-wives.
He testified he was in the car of a 22-year-old married woman and kissed her once lightly on the cheek in October 1985 when working a security job at the Portage Convenience Center.He said they didn't have an intimate relationship and he was talking with her for only three or four minutes.He was suspended for a day, he testified.
Jarosak also testified to a suspension for being at fault in an accident with a police car and may have received a two-day suspension.
Jarosak said he is working as an investigator for the U.S. Coast Guard out of Grand Haven, Mich.

The trial that got under way Monday afternoon pits former Portage City Councilman Ted Jarosak against cable television commentator Gordon Bloyer.
Gambill maintained Bloyer defamed Jarosak's public and private life on his show and referred to Bloyer as stating that Jarosak was caught in an inappropriate situation with a minor and threatened his (Jarosak's) wife with a gun.
Conover also told the jurors Bloyer used confidential informants, but also obtained information about Jarosak that had been the talk of the police department for years from Tom Pappas, a Portage School Board member.
Conover said Jarosak only watched 10 minutes of 150 hours of tapes from the Gordon Bloyer Show, despite the lawsuit.
Jarosak, 56, is a heavy equipment mechanic at U.S. Steel in Gary now on leave while serving with the U.S. Coast Guard as a special agent in the investigative service.

VALPARAISO - The 1999 slander lawsuit by former Portage City Councilman Ted Jarosak against Portage cable television commentator Gordon Bloyer is expected to go to trial Monday afternoon.
Jarosak contends Bloyer defamed him by making false statements about his personal life on the public-access shows Bloyer hosts on Portage's cable TV system.
Jarosak retired as Portage assistant police chief early in 1999 and was defeated in a bid for re-election to the City Council later that year, and again last year.
Bloyer maintains his statements about Jarosak are true and protected by constitutional freedom-of-speech guarantees.
The lawsuit was filed in November 1999 as Jarosak was finishing his third four-year term on the City Council.
Jarosak is seeking $750,000 for statements, he contends, Bloyer either knew were false or made "with reckless disregard as to the truth or falsity."
Bloyer insists everything he said about Jarosak is the truth.
"Ted didn't even watch tapes of my show; others told him about them," Bloyer said Wednesday.
Jarosak said in 1999 his attorney, Janice Gambill of Portage, watched more than 12 hours of videotape from Bloyer's TV show before filing the lawsuit.
The lawsuit cites two statements by Bloyer in April 1998 and June 1999: that Jarosak was "caught in the back seat of a police car with a teenage girl" and was reprimanded, and that Jarosak put a gun to his ex-wife's head and threatened her.
Jarosak said there was no basis for either statement.
Jarosak, 56, is a heavy equipment mechanic at U.S. Steel in Gary on leave while serving with the U.S. Coast Guard as a special agent with the investigative service stationed in Grand Haven, Mich.He said he has more than a year left before returning home.
