Subpoena in Civil Lawsuit

I have been subpoenaed to give a deposition in a civil lawsuit by the defandent in Arizona.

My question relates to what if the plaintiff in the lawsuit is lying about things that happended between myself and him?

I appeared at the deposition, without counsel, and was appalled at the things I was being told the plaintiff had claimed in his deposition that were absolutely incorrect. I stopped the depostion because I became very concerned about the he said/she said situation I was in.

I am afraid of what can happen due to the stories not matching, especially because there is no proof that either of us can provide. He says we had an intimate relationship, I say we did not.

What if anything can be done/pursued against me if either the defandent or plaintiff want to pursue my statements further? Should I obtain counsel?

I want to be sure I am opening myself to further questioning or actions against myself. I never wanted to be a party to any of this anyway.
