No, it’s not a conflict of interest. However, all of that background and the claim that you hate each other may be a valid issue for the jury to consider his credibility. It sounds like you are saying because you have a history with this cop he is biased against you. That is definitely something that can be argued during a trial and a jury can consider bias as part of credibility and whether to believe him, but it isn’t a basis to dismiss a case or exclude him as a witness.
