Shot by wife

Todd Jamison

Casanova's gals back him


The leading ladies in Casanova ex-cop Todd Jamison's life rallied behind the wounded man yesterday while spurned wife No. 3 - an NYPD officer - was charged with trying to kill her cheating hubby in Brooklyn.

As Jamison struggled to recover from being shot four times, his first wife, his cop mistress and his mom kept vigil at the hospital - while his second wife, another cop, checked in by phone.

"Just because things didn't work out marriagewise, it doesn't mean we can't be friends," first wife Valire Jamison-Elikens, 43, explained. "He was charming. That was one of his talents."

Jamison's mother, Bernice, said her strapping 43-year-old basketball coach son couldn't help being "just a lovely person."

"Most of the girls said he was handsome and tall and muscular," she said at Brookdale University Hospital, where Jamison was in stable condition. "Everybody just loved him. All the women just fell for him."

"You could say, loved him too much," added Bernice Moody, a cousin of the cop's mom.

Meanwhile, Officer Alison Jamison, 42, was returned from New Jersey, where she fled after the shooting, to Brooklyn.

She was charged with second-degree attempted murder, second-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

The 70th Precinct cop was awaiting arraignment and faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Alison Jamison had threatened to kill her husband, said his mother, who wouldn't reveal her son's whereabouts to Alison.

Police said the angry officer rented the car she allegedly used to ambush Jamison in Newark on Saturday. She then tracked him to East New York on Monday morning as he was departing to visit his new girlfriend in Syracuse.

Witnesses said Alison Jamison pulled even with his car and unloaded several rounds from her NYPD gun. Then the jilted bride pulled the car around and allegedly fired again.

Todd Jamison, according to police sources, was armed with a Glock handgun but didn't reach for it. And before he underwent surgery to mend gunshot wounds to his chest, stomach and both arms, he told doctors, "Alison shot me."

Yesterday, Jamison's ladies had little good to say about the accused officer.

"I met her once, but as far as her character I didn't really get a gauge on her," wife No. 1 said. "She definitely didn't seem like the type of person who would snap like this."


Two years later, Jamison's heart belonged to Alison, whom he started dating in 2004 and married last August, relatives said. "She seemed nice," Ronnie Jamison said.

But that marriage quickly foundered on the shoals of infidelity. Bernice Jamison said she warned her son he was "traveling too fast with these women."

"People loved him and that's why he's laying there now, fighting for his life," she said.

The current wife could not be stupider> He's going to continue being with women, and she's going to Bedford Hills for the next 15 years, no pension, no money, nothing. And for a guy who was screwing around and always had.

What a waste.

And with the ex-wives on his side, a jury and judge will throw her under the jail.
